Development of the organization’s research capacity through two projects. The first project aims to identify new ways to help individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families, particularly in rural or underserved communities, to access four validated online diagnostic and training support tools. The second project aims to generate new data to establish the impact of inclusive preschool programs on the development of young children with ASD and their typically developing peers; this data would better position SARRC to apply for NIH, state, and other sources of funding to support expansion of its preschool programs.
