The Autism Consortium is an innovative dynamic approach to accelerating research, new therapies and improved clinical care for autism. This Boston-wide partnership embraces an interdisciplinary inter-institutional approach which has attracted over 60 scientists who are interested in autism and other cognitive disorders. They are sharing knowledge, developing clinical best practice, collaboratively conducting breakthrough research, developing new diagnostics and providing enhanced care of affected children and families. The family network provides support, resources and new options for the diverse populations served by major autism clinics in Boston and now Worcester, and genetic counselors that offer families the opportunity to join in needed and groundbreaking research to find new genes, diagnostics and therapies.
