Welcome to the re-imagined Interactive Autism Network (IAN) Community, a unique source of information on autism and autism research. Our mission is to provide you with information about autism and autism research based on the latest scientific findings. We translate research findings into articles for non-scientists – individuals, parents, teachers and others affected by autism. We study journal articles and interview researchers and clinicians, with an eye toward placing that information into context. Then we report back to you, with information we hope you will find helpful and interesting.
