Autism Spectrum Disorders in the European Union (ASDEU)
Autism Spectrum Disorders in Europe is a new, trans-European programme involving university, charities and expert institutions to increase understanding of autism.
This website will grow into a unique resource as findings are published and news exchanged. For now, the project has only just started, but sign up for our newsletter to be updated as the programme develops.
The programme will:
– Study the prevalence of autism in 12 countries
– Analyse the economic and social costs of autism
– Develop proposals for early detection programmes
– Validate biomarkers for the disorder
– Train professionals
– Improve understanding of diagnosis, comorbidity and effective care and support for adults and senior citizens with autism
– Propose policies to promote harmonised support for people with ASD across member states
Two important ASD events took place recently: The Mid-Term ASDEU project meeting and the XI Autism Europe International congress 2016
“ASDEU Mid-Term Technical Workshop”
It took place in Edinburgh, Scotland, during the 14th adn 15th of September, 2016 and was hosted by the National Austistic Society.

XI Autism Europe International congress 2016
Our ASDEU Meeting was organized back to back with the annual Autism Europe Congress in September, 16-18, 2016 in Edinburgh. The congress attracted over 1,500 delegates, therefore the impact and dissemination of the work developed by ASDEU partners has been big during this occasion.
Different ASDEU partners were presenting results from ASDEU activitities in poster and oral communications.
Also, as part of the program of this Congress, there was a Symposium titled: “ASDEU and EU AIMS research projects: results and future impact” where the future of European policies for ASD were be discussed.
