Name URL Description
Autism Research Center The mission of the ARC is to understand the biomedical causes of autism spectrum conditions, and develop new and validated methods for assessment and intervention. The ARC fosters collaboration between scientists in Cambridge University and outside, to accelerate this mission.
Center For Excellence in Autism Research The goal of the Center for Excellence in Autism Research at the University of Pittsburgh is to conduct exceptional research on the cognitive, brain and genetic basis of autism. Through this research we hope to provide innovative treatment developments and to advance community services and government policy that will consistently improve the lives of those with autism spectrum disorders.
Kennedy Krieger Institute Laboratory for Neurocognitive and Imaging Research

In the Laboratory for Neurocognitive and Imaging Research, we investigate the biological basis of developmental disorders such as ADHD, autism, and anxiety. We hope that by learning more about the relationship between the brain and behavior our research can help improve diagnosis and treatment of children with developmental disorders. We are seeking participants 8-12 who are typically developing, have ADHD, or high functioning autism, or anxiety. We are also seeking 4 year olds with or without signs of ADHD and children 8-18 with Tourette syndrome.

Yale School of Medicine The Autism Program at Yale is an interdisciplinary group of clinicians and scholars dedicated to providing comprehensive clinical services to children with autism spectrum disorders and their families. We are also one of the leading research centers in the world and were recently recognized as a National Institutes of Health Autism Center of Excellence. Our program involves infants, toddlers, pre-school, and school-age children, as well as young adults (18-21 years) with autism and related disorders and integrates highly experienced professionals from the fields of clinical psychology, neuropsychology and neuroimaging, child psychiatry, speech-language pathology, social work, genetics and the biological sciences, as well as psychopharmacology and psychiatric nursing. Our clinical and research activities are located in the Child Study Center at Yale University, School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut.
