OAR

Organization for Autism Research

UPDATED: September 10, 2018

OAR's mission is to apply research to the challenges of autism.

We strive to use science to address the social, educational, and treatment concerns of self-advocates, parents, autism professionals, and caregivers. The mission of “applying” research to answer questions of daily concern to those living with autism defines our goals and program objectives and shapes our budget.

In addition to funding research, our mission includes the requirements to:

- Disseminate new and useful information to as many members of the autism community as possible, and
- Direct all research and programs initiatives toward enhancing the quality of life for individuals with autism.
