Why We Walk
Join us for another fun and exciting Zoowalk! The zoowalk is a fun family event that is also a major fundraiser for research at the Autism/Asperger’s Research Program at ASU.
Funds raised this year will go to support 4 major studies, including:
1) Treatment Effectiveness Survey – to determine which treatments are the best for different symptoms
2) 2nd GI Treatment Study- this will be a follow-up to our previous highly-successful study of a new treatment for gut problems in individuals with autism
3) Healthy Child Guide: this project is aimed at developing advice for families on how to prevent autism and other neurological problems
4) Mom’s Study – a new study on how to evaluate and treat metabolic problems in mothers of children with autism, to improve their health and prevent future cases of autism
Please sign up for the Zoowalk and support this important research!
