IRCIEF has conducted two phases of research entitled “Development of Enabling Centre to Empower Autism People”. The 1st phase research was a benchmark study in Turkey and Singapore. The 2nd phase was a research conducted in collaboration with Pusat Pungutan Zakat-Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan and Philandure Sdn Bhd. This research involves the current initiative to empower person with Autism in Malaysia. In 2020, IRCIEF successfully produced an autism empowerment model and this led to a MoU with an NGO, Persatuan Cakna Filantrofi (PhilCare) to implement the model.
