SEARCH is the University of California's first family autism resource center focused exclusively on family needs, such as educational access. Housed in the UCR Graduate School of Education, the mission of SEARCH is to provide support, education, advocacy, resources, community and hope to families who have loved ones on the autism spectrum.

As the first center of its kind in the UC system, SEARCH is designed to help families wade through the overwhelming varieties of services and treatments available for autism spectrum disorders. While simultaneously training the next generation of autism researchers and educators, our goal is to help reduce the amount of stress that families experience in attempting to learn about autism and access appropriate programs.

Through our autism screening clinic, community outreach activities, and online resources, we hope to be the premiere resource for information, education, and research in inland southern California and throughout the state. We are guided by the belief that every family deserves access to available resources, regardless of race, language, or socioeconomic status.

Our screening clinic is up and running for the fall!
