The Centre for Autism is a regional hub for research, clinical services, 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.
To support our research we also offer adult and student diagnostic services and interventions where appropriate. We are currently not accepting any new referrals as we are booked up until May 2020. Please check back here for an update in April.
Our research depends on the participation of individuals with and without ASC. Please consider joining our research database.
Join us for this term's SIG with John Cosgrove former head of Christ the KIng School who will talk about The Ark - the first ASD specialist provision for primary age children in Reading.
Whether it is conducting pilot studies on novel research ideas, running special interest groups for parents, or conducting public events to raise autism awareness, all what we do needs resources.
