The Autism Research Trust raises funds to assist research conducted at Cambridge University‘s Autism Research Centre, into the causes of and interventions for autism spectrum conditions.
Autism is a lifelong condition that affects 1 in 100 people throughout the world. Together with their families, that’s over 250 million people who are dealing with the effects of autism every day.
We want to accelerate understanding of what causes the differences in brain development in a typical child and in a child on a path to autism, from the earliest stage (in the womb) through their early infancy, and the different path of their brain development through adolescence and into adulthood. We also want to accelerate early diagnosis and through evaluation, establish the right interventions that can ensure that people with autism get the support, education and treatment that is right for their individual case.
Research is expensive. To benefit more people with autism we need you to get involved. With your help we aim to fund cutting edge research that will influence understanding and services worldwide.
The Autism Research Trust strongly believes that 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.
