The Autism Research Institute (ARI) is the hub of a worldwide network of parents and professionals concerned with autism. The only organization of its kind, ARI was founded in 1967 to conduct and foster scientific research designed to improve the methods of diagnosing, treating, and preventing autism. ARI also disseminates research findings to parents and others worldwide seeking help. The ARI data bank, the world's largest, contains nearly 25,000 detailed case histories of autistic children from over 60 countries. The ARI started "DAN - Defeat Autism Now!" in 1995 with the intent to get as many people as possible interest in autism.
The name INDIE stands for "The Integrated Network of Disability information and Education". It's a good Canadian site (fully bi-lingual too!) that covers issues like adaptive technology, transportation, and employment to name a few. Although this covers all types of disabilities it does have many references specific to autism. RECOMMENDED
