Information for Parents


A message from Sue Leekam Director of WARC

These pages are for you to connect with us. We value your support and contribution to our research and we hope that these pages act as a bridge to our research, our team and you. We would like you to meet our researchers and to get to know them and to find out more about our research.

Welcome message from Beverley Winn WARC Parent Consultant

Welcome to our parent pages which have been designed with your help. We have added interesting pages that are ASD & parent friendly without any academic jargon. These pages include an introduction to what each member of the WARC team does and what our parents and individuals with ASD have to say about us. We also have expanded on links to further information and services.

WARC’s Focus for the next five years

This is a summary of our Research interests going forward

Our focus for the next five years

Want to know more about brain imaging?

Whether you’re about to take part in some research or just curious about what brain imaging research is all about, we have a new booklet about brain imaging studies called “Wales Autism Research Centre and Brain Imaging”. The booklet introduces some of our team who work with brain imaging and describes what it might be like to have a brain scan. It also answers some of the questions we are often asked about brain imaging. You can read this booklet by clicking here. WARC has a research recruitment register! You can find more details on our volunteer page. For further details please contact

Conference Posters

Posters are used at conferences as a way for researchers to tell each other about their researchers, they are useful because they provide quick summaries with only essential information included and they enable more discussion than is possible with presentations.
