We are happy to read today that Autism Speaks has granted more than 3.8 million dollars for autism treatment research projects. This is great news from an organization that has traditionally funded autism cause research. Here is the list of recipients, along with an abstract for each treatment project.
One of our favorite autism treatment experts, Dr. Pamela Wolfberg of San Francisco State University, has been awarded $444,420 over 3 years to study “the effectiveness of IPG [Integrated Play Groups] in developing social skills in autistic children and in raising awareness of autism in typical peers”. If you have not read any of Dr. Wolfberg’s books, we highly recommend them.
