Participate in Research

Through research studies, we are striving to develop more effective methods of screening, diagnosis, and treatment of autism and other disabilities.  Research depends on the participation of individuals with autism and their families, as well as individuals who don’t have autism (typical development).

The Duke Center for Autism has a volunteer research registry which allows us to contact interested individuals, including parents and adults, to let them know about the research being conducted at our Center.  Participation is always optional.  Joining the registry also offers the opportunity to receive newsletters and other communication about events and activities sponsored by our Center.  To learn more about our Research Registry, click here.

If you would like to join the Center’s research registry, click on the "Join our Research Registry" button below.  You will be asked to provide your contact information so one of our staff can get in touch, provide more information, and formally add you to the Center’s registry, if you choose to do so.
