Centre for Applied Autism Research

Centre for Applied Autism Research

Professor Dame Uta Frith and Dr Mark Brosnan provide their insight into the new Centre.

The Centre for Applied Autism Research (CAAR) was established in 2016 by four members of the Department of Psychology researching the social-cognitive challenges faced by autistic people, to facilitate full and active involvement within society. This requires the active participation of the autistic and broader autism communities, including ‘the autistic researcher’.

Centre aims

  • To understand autism through world-class research.
  • To translate theory into practical applications.
  • To fully include the community within research.
  • To offer an educational and research resource for autism.

Professor Liz Pellicano from University College London leads this lecture on a new science of autism.
