There are several different realms in the Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) world that have become areas for controversy. One of those is regarding which autism organization to support and whether one is "better" than another. My ID Square will not advocate one organization over another but the fact is, all of these organizations are bringing awareness to the disorder and efforts to support people with autism...and that's a good thing. Do your research and decide which organization(s) you want to support. How to Choose a Charity Wisely, an article from the New York Times, was written over a year ago, but it suggests a few websites to help you analyze charitable organizations. The information is still relevant today.

For information about ASD from a neutral source, consider the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) at the CDC.
