Dear parents and autism professionals

My great interest for research has always influenced the work conducted by Autism Treatment Plus (AT+) and I am committed to constantly looking for rigorous ways to evaluate treatment and to progress our understanding of the pathologies associated with autism.

The way AT+ promotes research in autism is twofold; firstly through the collaborative partnership with UK and international universities and secondly by promoting and assisting the work of academic groups recruiting individuals in their clinical trials.  In this update email I highlight some of the ongoing research projects conducted by AT+. As you will see, these cover a range of interventions and topics. Some projects are based in the UK and can be conducted from your home, whilst others are based in Scotland, but open to anyone willing to travel to our assessment centre at Stirling University. All projects have received ethical approval.  Please contact AT+ for further information about these projects and to enroll your child.

I am also bringing to your attention two recent papers accepted for publication. One is a conference proceeding, “Changing the Course of Autism” which was organised last year in Edinburgh, and the other paper covers the outcome of a survey conducted to evaluate the quality of holidays experienced by families of children with autism compared to other disabilities. Visit our website for more information about these papers.

To be kept up to date with research projects, and all our latest news sign up to our blog on AT+ home page.

With best regards

Dr. Lorene Amet, D. Phil M.Ed (Autism)
