CULVER CITY, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Autism Spectrum Therapies (AST), an agency providing behavior therapy and other autism services in Southern California, announced the appointment of William Frea, Ph.D., BCBA-D, co-founder and chief clinical officer of AST, to the board of directors of the Los Angeles Chapter of Autism Speaks.

"It is a privilege to be a part of an organization that is so committed to the autism community, and such a powerful advocate for individuals with autism and their families," said Dr. Frea. "Autism Speaks is at the forefront of this urgent crisis, promoting and funding new research to discover effective treatments, prevention strategies, and, eventually, cures for autism. It is an honor to be asked to contribute to their mission."

Autism Speaks is the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research, raising awareness and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. In 2008, the nonprofit was awarded 42 Family Services Resources grants for projects such as training service providers, expanding recreational opportunities, supportive technology and equipment, and employment and college options for adults with autism. Autism Speaks raised over $70 million in 2008 and donated $36.6 million to new research funding.
