The Cognisant Lab is dedicated to improving the autism diagnosis experience, aiming to assist both parents seeking a diagnosis for their child and adults seeking a diagnosis for themselves. Currently, numerous obstacles hinder these individuals. As part of this research, the Cognisant lab seeks to gain deeper insights into these barriers to an autism diagnosis in order to provide valuable information to families, adults, professionals, and policymakers.

People who have obtained an autism diagnosis, faced challenges in obtaining one, or are currently navigating the process, the Cognisant Lab would greatly appreciate hearing about your experience.
