From time to time, you will be invited to take part in ASD research based on the symptom profile, age, and family characteristics of the person enrolled in autismMatch. You can volunteer for or ignore any specific study opportunity.
Online enrollment provides the added benefit of an interactive experience. Your family’s user profile will automatically be updated with studies you may be eligible for and will allow you to update your information as necessary.
When it comes to autism, science indicates you don’t have to choose.
Autism researchers are discovering genes related to autism, but findings suggest that genes alone don't explain everything.
Kathryn Lowe, the genetic counselor at the Center for Autism Research, explains.
CAR's Outreach Coordinator, Julianne, talks candidly about why she thinks autismMatch is important for families.
As a sibling of a young man diagnosed with autism, Julianne wants families to know that participating in research can help contribute to the development of evidence-based practices, which may one day help other families in making treatment decisions.
