Mike’s family chose to honor his life by supporting autism research, as Mike’s nephew, Andrew, lives with autism. In addition, many members of the Caesar family have dedicated their lives and careers to special education to help other individuals and families affected by autism.
OAR’s mission is to apply research to the challenges of autism. OAR examines issues and challenges that children and adults with autism and their families face everyday, and uses that information to improve the day-to-day quality of life of learners with autism. It entails the systematic investigation of variables associated with positive outcomes in such areas as education, communication, self care, social skills, employment, behavior, and adult and community living.
