Keep up with the latest research
A cornerstone of our mission at ARI is to stay abreast of the latest scientific research. Keep up-to-date with these two publications:
Autism Research Review International
The latest findings are gleaned from a computer search of the 25,000 scientific and medical articles published every week. A one-year subscription is $20 (US funds; $24 outside the US). Each issue is sent via first class mail.
Clinical Research in ASD
In collaboration with the
Schafer Autism Report, the Autism Research Institute publishes a free quarterly e-newsletter titled "Clinical Research in Autism." It provides online links to up-to-date clinical research related to patient care, and is for pediatricians, nurses and obstetricians.
Dear ARI Subscriber,
With 2015 well under way we are pleased to announce the release of Autism.Jobs
, an exciting new online employment resource center for adult persons with autism, parents and caregivers, job coaches and employers. The new site offers practical information that helps candidates become "job ready" and provides employers guidance for creating autism-friendly workplaces. This database is a searchable collection of employment resources. It includes links to articles, videos, books, and more. Guides highlight key steps in the employment process. We hope you find this database helpful in matching job seekers and employers in ways that reward both.
We are also continuing our online webinar series with talks booked through June 2015 and planning underway for the second half of the year. Registration is free through the ARI Online Education Hub and certificates of participation are provided upon successful completion of a brief knowledge quiz. Learn more
As we announced last month, a 50th anniversary edition of Dr. Bernard Rimland's classic book titled, Infantile Autism, is now available through Amazon.com. In addition to the original text, numerous autism experts provided updates on many of the topics raised by Dr. Rimland in his book. Readers will experience a glimpse of Dr. Rimland's style of logic as well as his subtle humor.
Autism Awareness Month is right around the corner - if you'd like to help ARI's ongoing work on research that makes a difference, consider joining our Puzzle Piece Campaign. We'll send you everything you need to launch a grassroots effort.
