Research & Development
Autism Queensland has a dynamic research and development department. Our aim is to promote evidence-informed, high quality practice at Autism Queensland. We regularly provide reviews of research to inform Autism Queensland programs. We also conduct research that aims to inform future directions of therapy and educational programs for children and adults with ASD.
