Our understanding of autism has developed a great deal over recent years, but there is still a large amount of work to be done. Research is vital not just to understand the causes and effects of autism, but to make sure that people affected by autism receive the best possible support. We support a number of research projects and offer access to the latest research for professionals and students.
