Autism spectrum disorder affects approximately 1% of the population and the incidence is increasing. Autism can have a profound effect on individuals and their families. We are conducting research into autism (including Asperger syndrome) in order to better understand the causes of these conditions. Improvements in our understanding will ultimately lead to better management and targeted treatments.
Minds For Minds was formed by a core group of New Zealand based researchers, clinicians and interested people from the community to help better understand autism spectrum disorder and Asperger syndrome in New Zealanders.
