Discover is the UK's virtual autism research network run by Autistica. It links autistic people, their families, professionals and researchers. We want everyone with a personal or professional experience of autism to join Discover.

By bringing everyone together we hope to:

  • involve more autistic people and families in research 
  • focus research on areas chosen by autistic people and their families
  • help researchers to work together on bigger and better studies
  • ensure services are evidence-based and effective
  • campaign for better Government support
