The Forum Institute was created in 2009. The Forum Institute is a think tank designed to bring experts in many fields together to assess the current state of knowledge and to determine the most promising directions for treatment and research. The Forum Institute supports high-quality, independent research designed to address four primary goals:

  1. identify and develop effective medical and behavioral treatments for individuals with ASD;
  2. provide mechanisms for disseminating this treatment information to individuals with ASD and their families, to professionals serving individuals and families impacted by ASD, and to the general public;
  3. assist in the development of community-based programs that help and support those affected by ASD; and
  4. influence the development of policy that facilitates treatment, research, and funding for ASD identification, evaluation, and intervention.
