  • Mission statement

    The Autism Research Trust (ART) aims to fund cutting edge research that will influence understanding and services worldwide.

    The goal of ART is to support research that will identify who will develop autism as early as possible, and then evaluate specific interventions and support, to aid them through the rest of their lives.

    Research funding will focus on:

    ◾understanding the biological causes of autism, and through the use of prenatal markers that can be measured in the womb, identifying – in pregnancy and at birth – those children who may develop autism.
    ◾improvements in the early identification of autism, allowing the diagnosis of children as early as possible in life.
    ◾autism-friendly infant intervention to be offered at an age when the brain is still developing.

    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.
