IAN Research Process - Frequently Asked Questions
What is IAN Research?
IAN Research is an online Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) research project.
By answering secure online questionnaires from the comfort of home, parents of children on the autism spectrum can share information about their child's diagnosis, behavior, family, environment, and services received, while adults with ASD can share valuable information about their experiences, strengths, and needs. Researchers from throughout the world will work with this information to learn about the effect and interaction of factors such as genetics, environment, and treatment, as well as the current situation, well-being, and needs of those affected by ASD.
IAN Research will also serve as a research registry, matching participants who give their permission with other local and national autism research projects studying ASDs. (Many research studies are delayed or even fail because they cannot find people to take part in the study.)
