AARTS: a woman shows a child a picture book

The Autism Assessment, Research, Treatment and Services Center, or AARTS, is committed to leading research efforts in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Chicago area. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that one in 68 children have ASD with symptoms such as social interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviors. As such, there is a great need to expand our knowledge of the diversity, symptoms and treatment of this disorder.

Here at the AARTS Center, it is our goal to explore, build and develop an understanding of — and treatments for — the undertreated needs of children, teenagers and adults with ASD. Our researchers and clinicians are dedicated to increasing knowledge of the etiology of ASD and developing effective treatments, with the aim of sharing our newfound knowledge with the community at large.

Our work

Researchers at the AARTS Center at Rush seek to improve the care of individuals with ASD through multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects in several areas. Learn more about research opportunities and various studies at AARTS.
