Founded by Drs. Janet McLaughlin and Margaret Schneider, the Laurier Autism Research Consortium (LARC) is a passionate group of professors, research assistants and students, working alongside various autism organizations, clinical experts, parent advocates, families and individuals with autism. Through conducting and sharing socially engaged research with policymakers and the public, our collective goal is to improve the quality of life for all autistic people and their families.
Stay tuned for upcoming research projects and opportunities.
