Community Initiatives

The Center for Autism Research's commitment to help families living with autism extends beyond the walls of our center. Our goal is for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) to be included, active participants in their communities. CAR and its researchers and staff are involved in many different projects throughout our region. We recognize that, in addition to basic research in the causes and characteristics of ASD, we need to conduct other kinds of research, provide training and support to families and community-based professionals, raise awareness about ASD across the region, and develop partnerships with other agencies, if we are to impact policy changes that will improves the lives of individuals with ASD. CAR and its researchers and staff are involved in many different projects throughout our region to this end. Click on the highlighted text below to read about some of our activities.

autismMatch

autismMatch will contribute to the next breakthroughs in autism research by helping scientists in the region connect with families interested in taking part in research.
