Autism clinic

We work with children and their families to prevent, treat and cure a wide range of conditions.
The Autism Clinic for Translational Research allows us to use research in real-world practice. The Clinic has been involved in breakthrough clinical trials that have shown that early intervention and therapies can dramatically improve outcomes for children with Autism.

What we do

Our Autism Clinic for Translational Research is committed to developing world-first treatments to improve the lives of young people with autism spectrum disorder and their loved ones. Our clinic concentrates on children and young adults up to age 30 with a diagnosis of autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) or Asperger’s syndrome.

Our approach

Our clinical psychologists, behavioural, cognitive and neuropsychology experts research how biology, genetics and brain functioning contribute to autism. Together, we are striving to develop the first ever medication to reduce social difficulties experienced by children and young adults with autism.

Your involvement makes all the difference - participate in a study

To find solutions and develop better treatments, we need individuals from the community who have been diagnosed with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and PDD-NOS to take part in our studies. We know that autism not only affects the person diagnosed, but their entire family. So we also encourage parents of autistic children to take part in our clinical research programs. This will help us uncover biological and behavioural markers that might play a role in the onset of autism spectrum disorder.
