Participate in Research
With estimates that 1 in 59 children will be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, it is more important than ever that we better understand the causes of and treatments for autism to help those with a diagnosis. Autism is currently the fastest growing developmental disorder in the United States. Research is the only way that we can continue to improve the quality and effectiveness of treatments and find a cure for autism.
To continue learning and developing treatments, it is crucial for individuals with autism and their families to participate in research. It is only with your help and support that we can move towards more effective treatment. Every breakthrough brings us closer to an answer to autism, which makes every piece of research, and every participant that much more important.
There is so much need for data from the autism community. Participate in these research opportunities to help discover the causes of autism and find treatments that work for children, teens and adults.
