BRAIN Foundation Aims & Vision
Our mission is to support translational research that will lead to the development of FDA-approved treatments and an improved standard of care for co-morbidities in individuals with autism.
Our vision is health, independence, and well-being for every person on the planet with neurological conditions, including Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is the fastest growing developmental disability – 1 in 44 children is diagnosed with autism in the US, and larger numbers have speech and language impairments, learning difficulties, and other related impairments.
Yet, there are only two FDA approved treatments for autism, both addressing only a narrow scope of surface symptoms.
This needs to change.
Dear Brain Foundation: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you do to give kiddos like Lukas another chance, and us parents hope. We are in awe of everything that you do every day, and hope you don’t stop any time soon. Love, The Arabadzic Family
