Autism Research

SARRC's research brings together many methods and scientists in an effort to gain greater understanding of possible causes of autism, identify better treatments, and learn, as well as educate others, about how to improve the quality of life for those affected by ASD and their families. We believe that collaborating with other researchers helps us better answer some of the essential questions facing individuals, families, and the greater community.

Our Main Initiatives

The Research and Community Affairs Department at SARRC focuses on three main initiatives: 

  • Improve early identification of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Improve treatments for ASD, both behavioral and pharmaceutical.
  • Educate various professional communities to improve their capacity to serve individuals with ASD.

SARRC often performs at the highest in the nation to recruit and manage data for pharmaceutical trials that investigate the effects of ASD medications. While not officially affiliated with any university medical center, to advance our research agenda, we actively collaborate on research projects with well-respected local, national and international organizations.

Internal Research on Clinical Programs

SARRC also conducts internal research on our clinical programs to determine their efficacy and provide information about how our various programs help parents and children affected with ASD.
