About the Institute

The Florida State University (FSU) Autism Institute was established in the FSU College of Medicine to coordinate and promote research, education, and service related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The mission of the Autism Institute is:

  • to promote interdisciplinary research that advances scientific knowledge of autism spectrum disorders;
  • to bridge the gap between scientific knowledge and community-based practice;
  • to build the capacity of primary care physicians and other community-based service providers, educators, employers, family members, and individuals with ASD to improve outcomes through research and training; and
  • to maximize the use of innovative video and information technology in research, education, and service related to ASD.

How Funding is Obtained
The FSU Autism Institute was established through private donations and grants. We strive to increase our funds each year through private and corporate donations, annual fundraising, and endowments. The FSU Autism Institute has a fund in the Florida State University Foundation, a non-profit corporation to enhance the academic vision and priorities of the university.
