April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day 2021, and, after a challenging year, I’m issuing a call to action for establishing a standard of care for individuals with autism. We are hopeful for brighter days ahead as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to be addressed and remain committed to supporting the health and well-being of people affected by autism through innovative research and impactful education.
For more than 54 years, ARI  has been committed to supporting the autism community. This is an urgent matter. I hope you will help ARI amplify this message by sharing this video and forwarding us your stories about how research can make a difference in providing appropriate support and care.
