About the Autism Clinic for Translational Research (ACTr)

We are a team of researchers based at the Brain and Mind Research Institute, University of Sydney. Our work is focused on developing a better understanding of and new treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Our ultimate goal is to develop practical solutions that improve the lives of families and communities. In order to achieve this goal, we are looking for individuals from the community who have been diagnosed with Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, or PDD-NOS. We need individuals of different ages, genders and backgrounds to participate in each of the various studies we run. These studies may involve diagnostic assessments and investigations into different treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorders, including group and individual therapy, and medications such as Oxytocin.

If you or someone in your family has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and you are interested in participating in one of our research studies, please fill in the following survey. When we are conducting a study which you may be eligible for, we will contact you to tell you more about it and see if you would like to participate.

If you are interested in learning more about this, please continue on to the following pages where our register is described in more detail and you have the opportunity to complete the survey, if you consent.

Alternatively, if you do not wish to fill out the survey at this time and are simply interested in learning more about our research programs, asking us for advice or asking a question about our research, please visit us on our website (http://oxytocin.com.au/) or Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AutismClinicForTranslationalResearchACTr/info).
