On August 19, 2013, the Rhode Island Consortium for Autism Research and Treatment (RI-CART) announced it had received a $1.2 million grant from the Simons Foundation to create a confidential registry of every individual diagnosed with autism in Rhode Island. The grant will help RI-CART create a data and resource continuum for thousands of children and adults in the state with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), which will also be used to support research projects on autism. During the next three years, RI-CART hopes to enroll over 1,000 individuals with autism into the registry network . . .
