Open Research Studies

Volunteers in ASD research have the ability to power discovery. Through research, we develop better methods of screening, diagnosis, and treatment.


Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the fastest growing neurodevelopmental disorder in the United States, affecting approximately one in 54 children (CDC). 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. Successful research depends on the participation of individuals with autism and their families, as well as individuals who don't have autism (typical development). Browse CART studies below.
