Autism Research

We are rooted in research and motivated by progress

SARRC’s research program brings together scientists and stakeholders to gain a better understanding of possible causes of autism, identify better treatments, and educate others about how to improve the quality of life for those impacted by ASD and their families.

Who We Are

We are a team working to identify the best, evidence-based practices for ASD screening, diagnosis, and intervention, but we cannot do it alone. This work would not be possible without the participation and support from families and individuals affected by ASD, the true stakeholders of this work. SARRC is often one of the top sites for recruiting participants for large-scale clinical trials that investigate the effectiveness of ASD treatments. While not officially affiliated with any university medical center, we actively collaborate on research projects with well-respected local, national and international organizations. We strive to identify pharmaceutical and behavioral interventions that are supported by strong scientific evidence and are informed by the needs, preferences and values of the community that we serve.

Contact Our Team to Get Started

SARRC’s Research Department conducts a variety of behavioral and pharmaceutical studies for toddlers, adolescents, and adults with ASD. These studies are designed to advance autism research that may help individuals with autism and their families in the future. We often have active studies for individuals with a range of other diagnoses (e.g. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Fragile-X Syndrome (FXS), Angelman Syndrome (AS)).
