Help Make A Difference For World Autism Awareness Day

Dear Friend,
Almost three years ago, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) established Israel’s first university-based autism center. The Autism Center integrates and advances research, training, clinical services, and community engagement, helping individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families in Israel and around the world.
ASD is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder occurring in 1% of the global population. The Center’s research, education, and outreach is collaborative, international, and interdisciplinary. Several Hebrew University departments are actively involved in the Center – along with Hadassah Medical Center and other university-affiliated hospitals – to advance both the science and quality of life of people and families with ASD.
The Autism Center’s physical home will be on HU’s Mount Scopus campus in Jerusalem. The designated building will be renovated to meet the Center’s needs, serving as a hub where researchers, clinicians, and stakeholders can connect under one roof--fostering dialogue, encouraging collaboration, and ensuring progress.
“The Center provides me with the opportunity to learn about autism--I attend research seminars and consult with specialists. The continued support from the Center’s researchers and clinicians will be indispensable to us as we help our daughter and her family meet the challenges of raising a child with ASD.”-U.L., a grandparent of a child treated at the Autism Center.
We need your support to make this facility a reality. Please support Hebrew University’s Autism Center today and be a part of the team working to understand the complexities of ASD and revolutionize its treatment.
In appreciation of World Autism Day, make a difference in the lives of those who benefit from continued advancements in ASD research.
