French-language autism web site launched

Published: June 2, 2008

Obtaining up-to-the-minute, reliable, evidence-based information on autism just got easier for the 6.8 million Canadians whose first language is French.

The Canadian Autism Intervention Research Network (CAIRN) today launched a French version of its acclaimed autism information web site.

Canadians can now log onto the popular site and access either the French or English version to read plain language summaries of the latest in autism research worldwide.

Supported by funding from Health Canada, the French-language web site is a first for Canada and an important step in CAIRN’s commitment to make the latest and best evidence in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) accessible to all Canadians.

CAIRN is a network of researchers, clinicians, parents and policy makers working together to improve diagnosis and treatment of children with ASD.  The group is based at the Offord Centre for Child Studies at McMaster University, and has been involved in some of the most exciting recent developments in the field of autism research worldwide.
