Culture Statement

The AIR-P aims to promote the health and well-being of autistic individuals across the life course, with a focus on enhancing physical health outcomes. Using an approach to research that emphasizes neurodiversity, the AIR-P facilitates research that aligns with the goals of autistic individuals and increases life expectancy, improves the healthcare experience, and optimizes physical health.

As part of the AIR-P mission, the Network integrates the perspectives of autistic individuals and uses inclusive language in research. We look forward to collaborations with prospective partners that consider inclusivity, neurodiversity, and a share goal of promoting quality of life in autistic individuals. 

Our Purpose

The Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health establishes and maintains an interdisciplinary, multicenter research network for scientific collaboration and infrastructure to increase the life expectancy and quality of life for autistic individuals, particularly for underserved and vulnerable populations. The purpose of the AIR-P is to support innovative life course intervention research that promotes optimal health and well-being of autistic individuals across the lifespan.


The Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health regularly publishes on the Cureus Journal of Medical Science's AIR-P Channel. Visit the following links to read our publicaitons.
