Autism Research

Since 2008, the Akhil Autism Foundation has been a trailblazer in serving people with autism, their families and the professionals who serve them. We are trying to research latest treatments and interventions. It’s our mission to bring in information about current studies and issue bulletins to our constituents to communicate and explain key new research findings. Today, 41 individuals will be diagnosed with autism, and their families have no clear path to treat the symptoms of this complex condition. For this reason, our organization wants to keep our constituents fully informed of research developments as they arise.
