The Centre for Autism is a regional hub for research and training in autism, located within the University of Reading.
Research at the Centre uses a range of techniques to examine core features of autism and to support the development of clinical interventions. All work is disseminated widely to the public as well as to a network for health and education professionals, through regular lectures, workshops and special interest group meetings.
