Led by patients. Trusted by leaders.

Who We Are

2m stands for “Two Mothers” Foundation: named for the supportive mothers of the founding team, but honoring the commitment of every mother to find the answers for their own children. We are a Silicon Valley organization that embraces the iconoclastic, agile, leaps not steps philosophy that characterizes this unique geography. We are patient-led and founded by a mother who relentlessly searches for better health for her child, and every child with seemingly unsolvable challenges related to ASD.

Sometimes the only way forward is to create something new.

We lead with bold ideas: Autism+.
Patient-Led. Open Source. Technology gives us a new window into autism. We need to look through it differently. And let our children’s data give us our answers.
