Research We Support

Autism Ontario engages with research in a number of different ways. The broader research efforts we choose to support, and the research we conduct as an organization, align with the vision of Autism Ontario – acceptance and opportunities for all individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. 


We support external research by hosting a list Research Participation Postings to connect members of the autism community to actively recruiting research studies. For a study to be eligible, researchers wanting to post a participation opportunity must demonstrate the research meets ethical standards and is consistent with our vision (see Guidelines for Researchers). Additionally, Autism Ontario achieves its vision through research through several action-oriented collaborations with key research partners, and by conducting its own Provincial Surveys used to shape priorities and inform advocacy efforts.
