The purpose of the autism consortium is to network and foster autism-related research and program collaborations at the University of Texas at Austin and in the Central Texas area. The autism consortium meets monthly during the academic year to share information on autism-related research, training programs, and services, present research findings, and network with the goal of developing and collaborating on research proposals and projects. This consortium formed in December of 2017 and is very informal. It is open to faculty, staff, and students at UT and other nearby campuses, community organizations that serve people with autism, parents of children on the spectrum, and adults on the spectrum who are interested in learning about or promoting research on autism.
We generally meet on the third Friday of every month during the academic year from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
