About BioAutism Ltd

BioAutism Ltd is a charity which aims to help identify some of the causes of autism so that in the future we may all benefit from its prevention and early intervention.

It will encourage dialogue between parents and researchers through the website, newsletters, public lectures, and conferences. BioAutism Ltd also aims to educate the community and governments on the need for more funding in this area.

BioAutism Ltd is the only charity in Australia solely dedicated to supporting research into the causes of autism.

For the last 70 years, autism has been classed as a purely psychological disorder. However in the last 10-15 years there has been considerable research carried out overseas which suggests the symptoms of autism are (epi)genetic and biochemical in origin. It is our aim to encourage much more such research in Australia.

During the period 2000-2009 approximately 80% of government funding for autism research went into investigating the physical, social, and psychological aspects of the condition, such as visual processing, motor functioning, early detection..... There has been very little funding for basic research into the causes of autism. This research is greatly needed.  With your support we can make a difference. Click here to see how you can help now.
