The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) seeks applied research proposals for its 2013 Autism Applied Research Competition from the United States and abroad. 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 across the lifespan,
- Adult issues such as continuing education, employment, residential supports, sexuality instruction, quality-of-life determinants, and “later intervention,” and
- 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 of one to two years in length that will likely produce practical and clearly objective results that promise some direct benefit for learners with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), their families, and related service providers (e.g., teachers, classroom aides, job coaches, speech pathologists, psychologists, etc.) at different times in their lives.
