Autism research is essential for us to better understand people with autism, meet their needs, and provide them with the highest quality of life possible. Due to early misconceptions about the condition, research on autism lags behind that of other psychiatric disorders and medical conditions, and it seems the more we discover about autism spectrum disorders, the more we realize we still have to learn.

While we still need to do more research, we know the more specific our research, the better we become at diagnosis and treatment – and as one clear finding to date confirms, the earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the better. Early detection can not only improve behaviors, but actually enhance brain function, and gives autistic individuals a much better chance at thriving as adults.
