The Autism Research Institute conducts, sponsors and supports research on the underlying causes of and treatments for autism.  In order to provide parents and professionals with an independent, unbiased assessment of causal and treatment efficacy issues, ARI seeks no financial support from government agencies or drug manufacturers.

We therefore rely on the generosity of donors to continue to advance autism research.  Our founder Dr. Bernard Rimland would often say, ‘Research that makes a difference!’ to remind us of the need to focus on what might be beneficial for autistic people.

Support our mission.
