Promote research programmes that are relevant & meaningful to real life day-to-day situations;

Continue & expand upon the successful WAO conference programmes that bring knowledge, intervention strategies & hope to areas where previously there were none;

Significantly decrease the chance of Autistic Spectrum Conditions becoming considered as a disability or a negative disorder;

Ensure democracy and transparency at every level & in every part of the world.

Make a meaningful difference to the lives of those with an Autistic Spectrum Condition around the world....
