Interdisciplinary Research

A diverse group of researchers are affiliated with the Center for Autism Research & Education including faculty from Economics, Education, Music, Nursing, and Psychology. Our priorities include:

  • Incorporating the voices of autistic individuals in the work we do, particularly through our Consultants group where autistic adults advise on all aspects of our research projects.
  • Partnering with members of our Affiliates group, which includes autistic adults, family members and professionals in the field, to ensure our work aligns with their needs.
  • Prioritizing research that reduces disparities among underserved populations.
  • Working with service providers in our local communities to support autistic individuals and their families.
