Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the United States as it affects one in 68 children. Each year, the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) continues to increase, which makes the need for programming, research and advocacy a top priority in the autism community.
Through a collective partnership with The Center for Autism Research (CAR) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Huddle Up for Autism serves to provide autism-friendly environments and events while working to educate, fundraise and create awareness for ASD. We support cutting-edge autism research that will provide guidance for families touched by ASD.
Through Huddle Up for Autism, along with the support of leading medical institutions like CAR and CHOP in the Greater Philadelphia area, we will continue our diligent work in this field until the mysteries of autism are finally unlocked.
