The FSU Autism Institute was established to coordinate and promote research, education and service related to autism spectrum disorders. The specific aims of the Autism Institute are:

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