Contributing to an Autism Research Database

National Database for Autism Research

Demonstrating the adage “power in numbers,” the National Database for Autism Research pools valuable data collected from 169,846+ sources. Individuals with autism spectrum disorders have participated in many types of clinical and basic research, in studies ranging from molecules to genes, to behavioral, social, and environmental factors, and this database aggregates the results to make their contributions even more relevant to a larger group of scientists. If you would like to contribute to the database as a person with ASD (or parent of one), you can start by connecting with a researcher in your area. Video features a full transcript, useful for people who are hearing impaired.
