VIA Commends Autism Speaks Call to Action

August 7, 2014 | Press

Paul Wang, Autism Speaks Senior Vice President for Medical Research, called for an investment in early intervention in his article, “Everyone Wins When We Invest in Optimal Outcomes for Autism.”

“It’s not just families but our entire society that benefits when we invest in effective intervention for all children with ASD, and do so as early as possible,” wrote Wang.

VIA commends Wang for his argument, “it makes dollars and ‘sense’” to invest in early intervention, research and evidence-based treatment methods.

As we watch our own clients learn and grow, we see the benefits of early intervention and evidence-based practice – not only for those clients, but for their families, friends and communities, as well.

Thank you to our families, staff and community members for supporting our evidence-based programs!
