The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) was created in December 2001 – the product of the shared vision and unique life experiences of OAR’s seven founders. Led by these parents and grandparents of children and adults on the autism spectrum, OAR set out to use applied science to answer questions that parents, families, individuals with autism, teachers and caregivers confront daily.
We’re dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by autism by supporting research that produces meaningful and practical results. We also keep families, educators, self-advocates, and professionals informed by delivering free, evidence-based resources and information everyday.
