In any disease or disorder there are four basic questions that can be investigated to improve its understanding: What causes it? (Etiology); What is it? (Biology); How do you know if someone has it? (Diagnosis); and most importantly, How do we make it better? (Treatment). In addition, as we begin to discover answers to these questions it is equally important to ask: How do we translate these findings into practice? (Dissemination). Autism demands answers for each of these questions. All are priorities. Autism Speaks has garnered its resources and organized its research program to pursue each of these avenues simultaneously. Our four science program portfolios have been designed to encompass these priorities and find answers to each of these critical questions. Although we have organized our program into four components, progress in any of these areas will help inform advances in each of the others.
