We fund research to understand the causes of autism, improve diagnosis and explore interventions to ensure that autistic people receive the best possible support.

By investing in high quality research we can make a difference to the lives of those affected by autism, both now and into future generations.

At the cutting edge of autism research

Thank you.

Early diagnosis and early intervention are so important. I wish I could have understood my son’s challenges years earlier.
