Vision, mission and goals

Our work is guided by our Strategic Plan which contains our vision, mission and goals.

We believe that all Autistic people should thrive. Research, innovation and knowledge translation play a vital role in achieving this aim. Our work is informed by Autistic people, community and industry partners, including the scientific community, and our team. We work closely with these key stakeholders in undertaking our research, and communicate our findings locally, nationally and internationally.
