Autism Society of America
The Autism Society of America is a private organization geared towards managing autism.
It holds the largest annual autism conference in the nation. Many of its presenters and directors hold education or doctoral degrees. The conference includes relatively little about possible cures for autism, or even possible causes of autism.
Its annual conference declares that its "ultimate goal is to empower family members, individuals on the spectrum and professionals to make informed decisions."
It publishes a quarterly journal called the Autism Advocate.
