As a university-based program, our clinical faculty and many of our staff members are involved in research.
Current research priorities at the DDDC include the assessment and treatment of maladaptive behavior, factors affecting skill acquisition in individuals with autism, and the impact of autism on families.
All research activities are conducted within the guidelines of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at Rutgers University. Families are invited to participate in research projects if they wish, but participation is never required in order to receive services from the Center.
