Autism Center of Excellence (ACE)

The primary mission for ACE was to advance scientific knowledge about language and social communication in children with autism. ACE supports three projects which collectively enhanced our understanding of autism and language. Our studies provided convenient and fun ways for children and their families to participate in research.
