We run two unique clinics that develop and evaluate new treatments for children with a range of developmental, behavioural and emotional problems, including autism, disruptive behaviour problems, anxiety and impulsivity.
Our Autism Clinic for Translational Research is committed to developing world-first treatments to improve the lives of young people with autism spectrum disorder and their loved ones. Our clinic concentrates on children and young adults up to age 30 with a diagnosis of autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) or Asperger’s syndrome.
Our clinical psychologists, behavioural, cognitive and neuropsychology experts research how biology, genetics and brain functioning contribute to autism. Together, we are striving to develop the first ever medication to reduce social difficulties experienced by children and young adults with autism.
To find solutions and develop better treatments, we need individuals from the community who have been diagnosed with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and PDD-NOS to take part in our studies. We know that autism not only affects the person diagnosed, but their entire family. So we also encourage parents of autistic children to take part in our clinical research programs. This will help us uncover biological and behavioural markers that might play a role in the onset of autism spectrum disorder.

The Sydney Child Behaviour Research Clinic is dedicated to developing state-of-the-art treatments for children with behavioural and emotional problems. In particular, we assist parents by providing them with cutting-edge strategies to help them better manage their child’s behavioural difficulties.
Our psychologists are continually studying ways to improve child behaviour problems. We run research projects with the brightest minds from the University of Sydney and beyond to develop innovative new treatments. Learn more about our research.
If your family chooses to participate in our research, we offer assessments and treatments free of charge. As we are a research-based clinic, all of our treatments are advanced, evidence-based programs that offer families the latest strategies in child behaviour management.
We’d love you to be part of our research journey. Currently we are recruiting participants for:
