The world needs more Autistic research: research that no one else is prepared to do, research that genuinely questions the status quo, and that would not be possible without the commitment, the perseverance, and the tireless efforts of Autistic people.

The Autistic Collaboration Trust partners with Autistic and otherwise neurodivergent researchers on an organically evolving range of topics that are relevant to Autistic people and the ecosystems that we are part of.

We actively encourage transdisciplinary collaboration between researchers via:

  • joint proposals of new research topics
  • assistance in establishing Autistic project teams
  • co-authoring of articles and books to publish results
  • Autistic peer review of publications
  • collaborations with universities who share the concerns of Autistic researchers
