The mission of the UMass Lowell Center for Autism Research and Education is to partner with neurodiverse individuals, as well as family members and service providers, to identify and meet the needs of the autism community. We aim to do this through targeted programming, educational opportunities, and research projects which are designed, implemented and evaluated in partnership with our community members.
