Resources about Autism

OTARC strives to develop and evaluate innovative approaches that enrich the lives of autistic people.

We achieve this through engaging with stakeholders in:

  • research development
  • knowledge transfer
  • implementation of research findings.

These resources covers autism across the lifespan. We have those created by OTARC researchers and those created by researchers at other organisations.
