Research Autism is the only UK charity dedicated to the promotion of high-quality research into autism treatments, therapies and other approaches. We are independent. We carry out our own research and also provide impartial information about autism approaches and research conducted by others. Our website meets the requirements of the NHS Information standard, which confirms the scientific rigour that is applied to all content and opinion. Our vision is of a world in which people with autism are no longer excluded, and where they and their families are able to enjoy a good quality of life.
