Research in Illinois


We are fortunate to live in a state with wonderful research universities, two of which are in the midst of seeking more information about Autism Spectrum Disorders. Do you want to help create better understanding about autism? Do you want to share your experiences to help other families?

Two opportunities are currently available and seeking participants to improve evidence-based research in the ASD field. Your participation in research can potentially influence thousands of families negotiating barriers and experiences similar to your own. Please contact the researchers below to get involved!

Dr. Ebata at UIUC is partnering with faculty from Minnesota and Nevada on the Parenting 2.0 research project. They are interested in how parents use technology, and results from this study will help to develop resources for parents. For more details, click HERE. To contact Dr. Ebata directly, click HERE.
