Autism Speaks announces multinational initiative
Date:5/9/2008

NEW YORK, NY May 9, 2008 Autism Speaks, the worlds largest autism advocacy organization announces today the formation of an international collaboration with North, South and Central America. This multinational initiative will help to raise awareness and develop research expertise focusing on public health and screening for early diagnosis and enhanced service delivery across the Americas.

We believe it is important to form partnerships with countries that have different cultures, levels of expertise, and existing services, said Autism Speaks Chief Science Officer, Geri Dawson, Ph.D. The Pan American autism research and services training initiative is an important step toward providing better services for all children affected by autism and their families

According to Carso Health Institute, this initiatives first purpose will provide the much-needed awareness to health professionals and families as well as support for early detection and training programs. This will ultimately enhance the quality of research and services in Latin America and the Caribbean. The newly trained service providers will then be able to deliver immediate benefits to the communities they serve with a special focus on children affected by autism and their families.

Evidence of effectiveness is critical in development of treatments for autism. For instance, behavioral intervention using applied behavior analysis (ABA) has been shown to benefit a significant number of affected individuals, said Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Director, Dr. Duane Alexander. Having well trained investigators is crucial for appropriate research on treatment of this disorder. We are pleased to collaborate to ensure the best research and research training on autism.

Health research on autism in Canada has become a priority in the last decade as it has in other countries. We have recognized that todays researchers and the next g
