Autism Research at Stanford
The focus of ADDRP is on research investigations involving individuals with autism and developmental disorders with the goal of improving the quality of life of these individuals by developing effective treatment strategies.
Research methods range from clinical trials, behavioral analysis, and basic science methods.
Our research aims at clarifying the neurobiologic underpinnings of autism and other developmental disorders. In addition, some of our work focuses on furthering our understanding of environmental and genetic factors that could be contributing to the onset and progression of symptoms. We also conduct a variety of clinical trials and studies of behavioral therapies in the hopes of identifying social, behavioral, and biological interventions that will be effective in the treatment of the core features of these disorders.
The Stanford Autism and Developmental Disorders Research Program would like to thank the children, as well as their parents and families, for contributing to research. The joint effort to better understand and provide therapies for developmental disorders is not possible without their past and continued involvement.
Stanford ADDRP would also like to ackowledge financial support from the following organizations:
