For parents, an autism diagnosis is the beginning of a long journey with their child, one in which support, guidance, and education are key. Although autism is a lifelong disability, only a tiny percentage of autism funding supports research on helping children with autism acquire daily living and vocational skills – skills necessary for independence.
NECC’s team of researchers at the John and Diane Kim Autism Institute focus on autism research to support children and families managing autism now. We are continually advancing the most effective, evidence-based methods for teaching children with autism.
We also share research findings with colleagues around the world through conference presentations and publications in peer-reviewed journals.
