ISA Mission



The International Society for Autism (ISA) is a grassroots autism organization which exists to improve the lives of all affected by autism. We do this by sponsoring research on empirically based treatment approaches for individuals with autism. The ISA also provides scholarships for individuals in financial need to attend clinical based treatment programs. The ISA also increases public awareness about the day-to-day issues faced by people on the spectrum, advocating for appropriate services for individuals across the lifespan, and providing the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy.

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Andrew S. Rubin and many parents of children with autism, the ISA serves as a free source of trusted and reliable information about autism. The International Society for Autism hosts comprehensive conferences on autism. Our information and referral team and our program staff and professional contacts serve families searching for help in their journey with autism.

The International Society for Autism office is headquartered in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The ISA panel of Professional Advisors sets the standards for our Options Policy that governs our practices.

Each year, people with autism, families and professionals volunteer thousands of hours to help the ISA achieve its mission of serving all those affected by autism. To each and every one of you, thank you.
