The Zoowalk for Autism Research is an annual walk held to raise funds for the Autism/Asperger's Research program at ASU. The walk is a family-oriented gathering that anyone can join, including children, adults, grandparents, students, corporate teams and more.

So gather your friends, family, and coworkers and enjoy a beautiful walk around the Phoenix Zoo while supporting our mission to find effective treatments for autism!

This year's Zoowalk will provide funding for several important studies including:

  • National Autism Treatment Effectiveness Survey – this is a national survey of autism families to rate the relative effectiveness of all autism treatments (medical, nutrional, dietary, behavioral, education, etc.)
  • Treating Gut Problems in Autism - this will be a 2nd larger study to follow up on our successful first study.
  • Treating Mothers of Children with Autism – this study will screen for health problems in mothers of children with autism, and treat those who have abnormal biomarkers
  • Autism Prevention Study - this will be the start of an 8-year study to follow 150 families from preconception to age 5 years.

Please join the Zoowalk and support this important research. 100% of the proceeds go directly to fund research at Arizona State University.

 

Sincerely,

James B. Adams, PhD

Director, ASU Autism/Asperger's Research Program
