The University of Maryland Autism Research Consortium (UMARC) is an interdisciplinary group of researchers in the Departments of Hearing and Speech Sciences, Psychology, Human Development, Linguistics, Kinesiology, and Special Education at the University of Maryland.
What we do:
We seek to advance the understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in children and adults, and to contribute to the development of effective treatments and interventions. Our research examines the social, cognitive, linguistic, and neural underpinnings of autism. We also host the Community-wide Learning about Autism Speaker Series: UMARC CLASS, a monthly lecture series for parents, professionals, and students in the community!
Save the Date! This year's PEERS School-Based Training Conference will take place from June 7-June 9, 2018.
