The 2012 ZooWalk raised over $100,000 cash, and had over $200,000 in donations of medical testing and nutritional supplements. Due to your support, they will be able to complete their 12-month multi-treatment study to help many children and adults with
autism in Arizona!

ASU’s Autism/Asperger’s Research Program’s focus is primarily on biomedical issues, including nutritional deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, and bacterial/yeast overgrowths in the gut. However, we strongly recommend that a combination of biomedical, behavioral, therapy and educational interventions be used to best help children and adults with autism spectrum disorder.  The research group is dedicated to finding the causes of autism, how to prevent autism, and how to best help people with autism.

The ZooWalk for Autism Research is an annual walk held to raise funds for Autism/Asperger’s Research program at ASU. The walk is a family-oriented gathering that anyone can join, including children, adults, grandparents, students, corporate teams and more. This year’s Zoo walk is dedicated to raising funds for a 1-year multi-treatment study for children and adults with autism. This study will involve a combination of special vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, carnitine (to boost energy metabolism), and special diet (gluten-free, casein-free) that we believe will significantly help many individuals.
