The Autism Research Institute (ARI) was established in 1967 and is the oldest autism research 
in the world. Its founder, Dr. Bernard Rimland, was a pioneering researcher, and he is credited 
with changing the field from viewing autism as a result of neglectful parents to an underlying 
biological condition. He was also the founder of the Autism Society of America and the head 
consultant for the movie Rain Man.
We are currently introducing ourselves to support groups worldwide and informing them of our new 
outreach program. Throughout our 54-year history, we have established and maintained networks (1) 
to support scientific investigation, (2) to inform the healthcare community about evidence-based 
best practice, and (3) to distribute up-to-date information to the entire autism community.
Starting later this year, we will focus much of our efforts on providing evidence-based information 
about research and treatment effectiveness through online lectures and conferences, discussion 
groups, and informative articles.
We are also asking network groups to help us recruit interested researchers and healthcare 
professionals in their community to learn about various medical conditions and treatments often 
associated with autism.
This includes anxiety, gastrointestinal disease, immune and metabolic dysregulation, neurological 
disorders, sleep problems, and much more.
As part of our collaboration, we will also send your organization a complimentary subscription to 
our science newsletter titled the Autism Research Review International (ARRI). You are welcome to 
translate one or more articles and share them with your membership. The newsletter provides a 
summary of the most recent and relevant studies on behavioral challenges, co-occurring medical 
conditions, education, gastrointestinal disease, immunology, metabolism, neurological disorders, 
nutrition, sensory processing, and more.
There is no cost to join this program.
If you are interested in participating in ARI’s global network, please complete the membership form

We have also attached a copy of the ARRI science newsletter.
