The aim of the ARC is to understand the biomedical causes of autism spectrum conditions, and develop new and validated methods for assessment and intervention.
They are currently interested in recruiting additional participants for their research database.
Registration is completed online and those who choose to sign up will have access to many different studies both online and in person. They are looking for adults (over 16 years old) diagnosed with autism spectrum conditions or parents of children (under 16 years old) with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum.
Some additional information –
Those who would like to register will be asked to provide some background information and can immediately take some questionnaires and psychological tests online. Participants can complete these at their leisure by logging in and out of their volunteer homepage with their chosen login details and will only need to complete them once.
ARC will also contact participants from time to time to tell them about new projects which might be of interest to them. The research projects carried out by the ARC are varied. Many of our research projects only involve filling in 5 minute questionnaires or doing tasks online. Some of their studies may involve being assessed by one of their team (such as brain scanning studies) or taking part in genetic studies.
All of the studies, whether psychological or biological, are carefully designed to protect participants’ confidential information and are governed by the University of Cambridge Psychology Research Ethics Committee, which approves all of their work.
