Autism Research Institute Launches Mobile Website
Date:7/8/2008

autism.mobi now available to provide mobile-friendly content and services

on Autism-related issues to world's two billion mobile users

SAN DIEGO and WASHINGTON, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Autism Research Institute, a leading non-profit organization, has launched a mobile Internet Web site, http://autism.mobi, designed specifically for users of mobile devices and mobile phones, including the Apple iPhone.

According to Steve Edelson, director of the San Diego-based research and education group, this is the first .mobi Web site created and maintained by a national autism organization, and is in response to consumers' desire for "practical" mobile content.

"There are almost two billion mobile Internet users today, and we're tailoring our organization's services to better serve those needs," said Edelson.

Many of the major papers and published studies from the Autism Research Institute's popular website, http://www.autism.com, have been reformatted for easy, on-the-go reading on http://autism.mobi.

The site also includes advice for parents, treatment tips, and answers to frequently asked questions. One especially valuable feature is the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC), which is designed to evaluate cognitive, communication, sensory, and social skills - as well as the physical health - of individuals on the autism spectrum. Parents and specialists can complete the ATEC on their mobile phones at any time, such as when waiting in the doctor's office, and they can immediately forward the results to their child's or patient's physician for review.

Amy Mischler, dotMobi's Vice President of Identity and Brand Services said, "dotMobi recently released the results of a study that showed consumers want useful, practical content available for their mobile phones. Autism.mobi is an excellent example of that, as well as being a site which is designed to serve the needs of a community. Globally, people are more likely to have a mobile phone with Internet access than a computer with Internet access, and having a .mobi site available allows an organization to reach a greater population who will be able to benefit from its services."
