What Is the NC Autism Research Registry
The NC Autism Research Registry is a confidential database maintained for the purpose of matching qualified participants who have a confirmed diagnosis

How Can I Join the Autism Registry?
To enroll in the Registry, adults (or parents on behalf of minor children) sign participation consent forms and provide clinical evaluation results
confirming an ASD diagnosis. Evaluation results are used only to determine eligibility to studies and are not released to research projects without
explicit written consent from the member. Most research studies conduct specialized assessments related to their topic of study.
