Welcome to the Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development. We are a group of clinicians and scientists dedicated to helping each individual with autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders reach his or her full potential, thereby allowing society to benefit from the talents and diversity which persons on the autism spectrum offer.
The Duke Center for Autism has a volunteer research registry which allows us to contact interested individuals 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 special events and activities sponsored by our Center.
