How to Help
The discoveries made by The Autism Research Foundation have brought hope by clearly indicating that parents are not responsible for their children's autism. But these discoveries point to greater challenges.
TARF needs your help to meet these challenges. You can help us solve the puzzle of autism in a number of ways. Financial contributions are essential for continued research into the causes of autism and related brain disorders. TARF is committed to a better understanding of the autistic brain and to applying this knowledge to:
• Find strategies for prevention
• Develop and evaluate effective treatments
• Act as a catalyst for education and research by others
• Financial Support
• To continue their work
TARF needs your financial support. Please aid this important research by making a gift to The Autism Research Foundation.
Your contribution can be sent to:
The Autism Research Foundation
c/o Bauman Lab, R-1014
72 East Concord Street
Boston, MA 02118
TARF research also depends on donations of brain tissue from both autistic and normal individuals who have died through accident or illness. Tissue donations can be made through The Brain Bank at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, 1 800 BRAIN BANK.
