    Association for Science in Autism Treatment
    Association for Science in Autism Treatment is committed to science as the most objective, time-tested and reliable approach to discerning between safe, effective autism treatments, and those that are harmful or ineffective. ASAT supports all scientifically sound research on the prevention, treatment and cure of autism, as well as all treatments for autism that are shown to be effective through solid scientific research, regardless of discipline or domain. Until recently autism was considered to be lifelong and severely incapacitating. However scientific investigation has demonstrated that, with early, effective and validated intervention, individuals with autism can make significant improvements and lead lives filled with hope, promise and purpose. Some, in fact, can achieve normal social and intellectual functioning. Despite these profound advances, many individuals with autism are unable to obtain effective treatment due to a lack of knowledge and access to this vital, scientific information.
