Québec 1000 Families is:
Researchers and collaborators working together to better understand autism.
Autistic people and their families, clinicians, and professionals, contributing to research, together.
Using knowledge to improve and transform autism services and care.
Québec 1000 Families (Q1K) is a unique initiative that draws on both autism expertise in Québec with autistic people’s and their families’ experiences to accelerate the discovery process and transform care and services.
Q1K will build a large database that researchers from around the world can access to conduct research projects.
Its first phase, the Q1K Registry, will make it possible for Quebec researchers to offer autistic people opportunities to participate in research.
The Q1K Registry invites people of all ages who have autism and/or neurodevelopmental diagnoses to register. Immediate family members, including parents, children, and siblings of autistic people, are also invited to register.
When Research is Inspired
When research is inspired by autistic people and their families, it becomes an engine of transformation and change for the entire community.
Q1K, it’s us, it’s you.
