Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $40,000 to USA, Canada, and International researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for studies related to autism treatment and intervention. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Special emphasis is placed on studies that will likely produce outcomes that are meaningful to the autism community and have potentially broad application to the practical challenges autism presents.

Through this competition, OAR intends to promote evidence-based practices delivered from research in the following areas:

  • The analysis, evaluation, or comparison of current models of assessment, intervention, or systems of service delivery, including policy analysis
  • Applied aspects of educational, behavioral, or social/communicative intervention
  • Effective intervention across the lifespan for individuals considered to be severely impacted by ASD
  • Issues affecting adults with autism such as continuing education, employment, residential supports, sexuality instruction, quality-of-life determinants, and services and supports for older autistic individuals
  • Issues related to family support, social and community integration, assessment and intervention with challenging behavior, and the use of technology in support of learners with ASD

OAR seeks to fund studies that expand the body of knowledge related to autism intervention and treatment, produce practical and clearly objective results, have the potential to impact public policy, and provide outcomes that offer to enhance quality of life for persons with autism and their families.  While applicants are always free to submit on any relevant area of research or intervention, this year, OAR is placing an emphasis on research that addresses the following targeted areas:

  • Community-Based Assessment and Intervention for Challenging Behavior
  • Community-Engaged Research
  • Physical Health and Mental Health
  • Improving Access to and Effectiveness of Existing Systems and Services
  • Intersectionality, Equity and Diversity
  • Mid-life and Older Adults
