(November 19, 2012—New York, NY)--The Autism Science Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and funding autism research, now allows visitors to its website to find autism research by topic at autismsciencefoundation.org/autism-science/research-by-topic. The nonprofit has organized an extensive library of autism research studies dating back to 2008 into over 64 different categories from animal models to wandering.

"Parents and students have been asking for this for a long time” said ASF President Alison Singer. It’s how we, as stakeholders, think about research; not by publication date or publication title or author, but by topic.”

“Several interns slaved away at this for months,” said ASF Media Director Dawn Crawford. “It was a tremendous amount of work but now we have something really useful that I hope will be a great resource for the autism stakeholder community. Our thanks to all the staff and interns who contributed to this project.”

The Autism Science Foundation is a 501(c) (3) public charity. Its mission is to support autism research by providing funding to scientists and organizations conducting, facilitating, publicizing and disseminating autism research. The organization also provides information about autism to the public and serves to increase awareness of autism spectrum disorders and the needs of individuals and families affected by autism.
