About

Autism Key is run by parents and for parents of children with autism spectrum disorders. The site was founded in 2005 to offer resources and support to the autism and special needs communities.  Through first hand experience, we previously learned that the most difficult part of receiving an autism diagnosis was the lack of support and readily available information.  As a result, Autism Key was launched as a resource tool for parents and loved ones to encourage, support, and learn from one another’s challenges. 

Since its founding, Autism Key has equipped tens-of-thousands of families with vital information and resources, and continues to offer unique content for the autism community. This includes news, multi-media information, autism message boards and commentary from a variety of viewpoints and perspectives.

In January of 2011, Autism Key launched its blog and article section, which includes news and editorial pieces from parents aimed at helping and informing the autism community. Our goal is to provide balanced commentary and information on topics from authors who share various points-of-views.
