Have you ever thought about volunteering to participate in our research studies?

We're always looking for children (from birth onwards) and adults of all ages to participate in our studies.

Even though we are an autism research centre, we are not only interested in studying children and adults who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, but also in those who have another disability or no disability.

We make our studies as interesting as possible for everyone involved. For children, taking part in our studies is like playing a game. It's fun!

Please read the OTARC Privacy Statement before registering.
