The Autism Intervention Research Network on Behavioral Health (AIR-B) is a network of researchers seeking to advance evidence-based behavioral treatments for children with autism spectrum disorders, particularly those in underserved and minority communities. The network is composed of nine sites across the country:

·     University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)- Center for Autism Research and Treatment (CART)

·     University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC)

·     University of Pennsylvania -Center of Mental Health Policy and Services Research (CMHSR)

·     University of California, Davis (UC Davis)- Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorder (MIND Institute)

·     A.J. Drexel Autism Institute

·     Florida State University (FSU)

·     Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI)

·     New York-Presbyterian Center for Autism and the Development Brain (CADB)

·     University of Washington (UW)

The network is conducting a number of studies to assess the efficacy and sustainability of community-based treatments and is working with members of the community to ensure that these treatments are addressing the challenges that children with autism spectrum disorders face in day-to-day life. In these efforts, we hope to make substantial advancements in the field, to empower educators, professionals, and parents with the tools they need, and most importantly to make a difference in the lives of children with ASD.
