Parent's Research Guide | Organization for Autism Research

Resource Spotlight

OAR will release an updated Life Journey Through Autism: A Parent’s Guide to Research with the generous support of the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation on December 13.

A Parent’s Guide to Research holds a special place in OAR history as the first of nine installments in the Life Journey through Autism series. Released back in 2003, the guide aims to help families of newly diagnosed children with autism better understand autism and navigate both public information sources and current research to make better-informed treatment decisions for their children. To date, it has reached the homes of more than 15,000 families.

OAR collaborated with Kara Hume, Ph.D., Nancy McIntyre, Ph.D., and Sallie Nowell, Ph.D., from the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute to update the guide and ensure it contains the most relevant and current information for parents. The updated guide helps parents better understand how to read online information critically. It covers evidence-based research, current trends in autism research, and updated sources of autism research.

Pre-Order the Research Guide

In celebration of OAR’s 18th birthday, the updated guide will be available starting December 13. You can pre-order the updated research guide on OAR’s website or download the current version.
