Research Publications

One of the best ways for NECC to share research findings is through the many scientific publications that cover the field of autism and related disorders. For example, summaries of studies conducted by our staff members, as well as those that were completed through collaborative efforts with other research centers and individual scientists, have appeared in periodicals such as the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.
