IAN Project - Autism Spectrum Disorder research and communityTop Rated What is the IAN Project?
IAN, the Interactive Autism Network, is an innovative online project designed to accelerate the pace of autism research by linking researchers and families. Anyone impacted by an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can become part of IAN's online community to stay informed about autism research, provide feedback, and make their voices heard.
In addition, families of children with an ASD can share information in a secure online setting and become part of the nation's largest online research effort. As a result, researchers will obtain valuable data, explain findings, and collaborate with families and one another. This dynamic exchange could lead to new discoveries about causes, diagnosis, treatments, and a possible cure for this puzzling group of disorders. http://www.ianproject.org/ -
