Autism at FPG

Investigators at FPG conduct research and provide professional development and technical assistance support through a wide variety of autism focused projects. A sampling of those projects is listed below. You can click on an individual project to learn more.

We have published dozens of book chapters, journal articles, reports, policy briefs, and practitioner-friendly resources that address the needs of individuals with autism across the age range, as well as the needs of their families and service providers.
