Interactive Autism Network (IAN)  

Interactive Autism Network (IAN) Research is a scientific study where individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their families, and qualified researchers throughout the United States work together to understand ASD. IAN Research connects researchers to individuals with ASD and their families to uncover the secrets of this complex disorder. Participants provide information in a secure online setting about diagnosis, behavior, family, environment, and services received. Participating parents report on their child's progress over time. Adults with ASD share information about their experiences and needs. Researchers from different institutions throughout the country will work with this information to learn about the effect and interaction of factors such as genetics, environment, and treatment, as well as the current situation and needs of those affected by ASD. IAN Research will match willing individuals and families with appropriate local and national research projects. Project Status
