Who We Are

We developed the current New Jersey Autism Center of Excellence (NJACE) to address the complex and unique features of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) by promoting increased communication and collaboration amongst autism researchers, educators, practitioners, and autistic individuals and their families to improve our understanding of and ability to diagnose and manage ASD, decrease service disparities, and improve health outcomes for all New Jersey individuals and families affected by ASD.

Who We Serve

Individuals with Autism and Caregivers

We believe in involving autistic individuals and their caregivers in every step of diagnosis, research, and management of ASD. Without their invaluable insight, our work would lack the necessary community input to make lasting change.

Clinicians and Professionals

We offer practica, workshops, symposia, and an annual conference to provide continuing education on critical areas of need to clinicians and professionals who work with individuals with autism.


We offer seed grants to aid autism researchers in the development of competitive federal research and training grant applications. Additionally, we will develop a state-wide ASD research database to connect autistic individuals and their families with autism researchers. 


We believe in equipping students early with opportunities to learn from and collaborate with researchers and clinicians in the field.


Through collaborative research, we can continue to refine best practices in the diagnosis and management of autism. The NJACE aims to be a resource for researchers throughout the development, implementation, and analysis of research.

Trials & Clinical Studies

Individuals with autism and their caregivers should be involved in research projects from start to finish. The NJACE plans to develop a state-wide ASD research database to serve as the hub for researchers, individuals with autism, and their caregivers to connect throughout the development, implementation, and analysis of research.

Events Calendar

Throughout the year, the NJACE will host various in-person and virtual events. Be sure to stay to up-to-date on upcoming and past events through the NJACE website and mailing list!
