Open Research Studies

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the fastest growing neurodevelopmental disorder in the United States, affecting approximately one in 68 children. The increase in awareness and diagnosis of ASD, along with the limitations of current therapies, has necessitated more research to understand the underlying causes of ASD, the establishment of best practices in clinical care, the development of better treatments to improve lifelong outcomes, and the dissemination of educational programs to the autism community.

Through research studies, we strive to develop more effective methods of screening, diagnosis, and treatment of autism spectrum disorder. Research depends on the participation of individuals with autism and their families, as well as individuals who don’t have autism (typical development).

Join the CART Research List

CART has a volunteer Research List, which allows us to contact interested individuals, including parents and adults, to let them know about the research being conducted at CART. Participation is always optional. Joining the Research List also offers the opportunity to receive newsletters and other communication about events and activities sponsored by our Center.
