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.
Our goal is 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 are also hosting the Community-wide Learning about Autism Speaker Series: UMARC CLASS, a monthly lecture series for parents, professionals, and students in the community!
Thank you to everyone who supported UMARC during our recent LAUNCH UMD, crowdsourcing initiative. We were able to meet our goal, raising over $8,000! These funds will help continue and expand UMARC CLASS. We couldn't have done it without your help!
