Back in April, we wrote a blog post observing Autism Awareness Month. At that time, we had just over 100 members with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Now, just two months later, we’re pleased to report that our ASD membership has more than tripled with over 350 members reporting ASD and nearly 100 reporting Asperger’s syndrome.
Do you know someone who has a child with ASD? Currently, patients under the age of 20 comprise the largest segment of our ASD patient membership. As a result, we’ve created a leaflet for parents of children with ASD that explains the benefits of joining PatientsLikeMe as a parent/caregiver.

Imagine the knowledge and support you could gain from finding other children like your child – or other parents like you. Because when you connect with others like you, you can learn what’s normal. You can see how other families are approaching treatment. Most importantly, you can discuss ASD challenges with people that truly understand.
We look forward to the continued growth of our ASD membership. If you know a family affected by ASD, please pass along this leaflet today.
