All About Research
To unlock the mysteries of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), research across a wide variety of disciplines is essential. Scientists play a crucial role in this process, but they cannot provide answers on their own. Those with ASD and their families can play a vital part by participating in research studies and becoming informed consumers of research.
In IAN Research, we explain how individuals with ASD and their families can participate in a major autism research project via the Internet from the comfort of home.
In IAN Research Publications, we describe numerous research studies and presentations using IAN data.
In IAN Stats, we provide a set of interactive tools that let you explore the current IAN Research data and questionnaires. Find out what 30,000 people are saying about autism.
In Researchers Need You, we list ASD research studies in the United States that are currently recruiting subjects.
In Researchers Need You! Studies No Longer Recruiting, we provide a comprehensive list of U.S. research studies that are working with us but no longer recruiting subjects.
In IAN Research Reports, we present preliminary findings based on the data participants in IAN Research have provided so far. Discover what we've learned!
In IAN Research Questions, we display the IAN questionnaires. Curious about what we're asking families of children with ASD, as well as adults on the spectrum? You can find out here! In many cases, we even have results to share in the form of pie charts showing how participants are answering specific questions.
In Understanding Research, we encourage individuals with ASD, as well as their families and advocates, to become informed consumers of research, empowering them to question and to challenge. Learn how to evaluate research, as well as what theories and insights are driving autism research.
In Government Initiatives, we report on high-level decision making regarding autism research.
In Autism Spectrum Disorder Research, we explore current autism research: projects, articles, and findings.
