Center for Autism Research
The Center for Autism Research (CAR) is a collaborative effort between Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Philadelphia and The University of Pennsylvania. CARâ€™s goals are to identify the causes of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and develop effective treatments. CAR conducts research studies for infants at risk for being diagnosed with ASD (due to having a sibling already diagnosed) as well as toddlers school-aged children and adults on the autism spectrum. Families receive comprehensive assessment reports and are paid for their time and travel costs. Typically developing children and adults are also needed for comparison purposes.Deb Dunn
