Date:3/11/2008

New York Stock Exchange Bell-Ringing, Shafallah Center Celebration and

'Walk on the Web' Highlight Global Awareness Initiative

NEW YORK, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Autism Speaks, the world's largest autism advocacy organization, today announced a series of international events to mark the inaugural celebration of World Autism Awareness Day, an unprecedented global effort to heighten awareness about a disorder affecting millions of individuals and families around the world. The April 2 events will take place on three continents and in venues ranging from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to local bookstores and the worldwide web, and are expected to generate significant national and international media coverage.

Autism Speaks Co-Founders Bob and Suzanne Wright, along with other families affected by autism, will kick off World Autism Awareness Day with a visit to the New York Stock Exchange to ring the opening bell. Ceremonies will also take place at the Shafallah Center for Children with Special Needs in Doha, Qatar during the first two weeks of April. Last month, Autism Speaks and the Shafallah Center announced a new partnership designed to increase global autism awareness and speed the pace of autism research worldwide. On World Autism Awareness Day, new autism research activities will commence at Shafallah.

Throughout World Autism Awareness Day -- and during Autism Awareness Month taking place in April -- people from around the world will take part in the Autism Speaks "Walk Now on the Web." Modeled after Autism Speaks' successful Walk Now for Autism fundraising events and sponsored by Toys"R"Us, the "virtual walk" will enable anyone with Internet access to join together to build community, learn more about autism and raise funds for programs and research. Toys"R"Us serves as national sponsor of more than 75 Walk Now for Autism events across the United States. Walks are also taking place in Canada and Great Britain.
