About

The Autism Research Foundation (TARF) is the first medically-accredited autism research charity in the world: founded by the researchers who proved that the cause of autism was biologically-based and required much more compassion than criticism.

As a result, we have an incredible community of thoughtful volunteers who are all committed to improving the quality of education, activity, healthcare, employment, and social resources made available to this growing population.

Where more kids will be diagnosed with autism this year than AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined, almost everyone knows someone with autism. We hope to highlight the positives, minimize the negatives, and offer affordable, approachable science for individuals with autism and the great people who help them everyday.

We are committed to you.
