Be Included in Autism Research

The Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) and the Gernsbacher Lab
believe in research WITH autistic adults, not just ABOUT autistic adults.

Together, we have created the Gateway Project, which is an online gateway to research that

–  encourages the inclusion of autistic adults in matters that affect them;
 –  includes autistic adults as equal partners in research about autistic persons;
 –  answers research questions that are considered relevant by the autistic community;
 –  uses research findings to effect positive change for people on the autistic spectrum.

The Gateway Project needs your help, whether or not you are on the autistic spectrum.
If you’re at least 18 years old and have access to the Internet, you can participate in a series of online research
studies. Upcoming studies address topics such as healthcare, well-being, and problem solving.

To participate in the Gateway Project:

1. Register online for a Gateway account starting at http://www.thegatewayproject.org
2. Take the online Gateway Survey. The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.
3. You will be notified by email when new studies for which you are eligible become available.

Completing the survey entitles you to a 1 in 25 chance to win a $25 Amazon.com gift certificate.

About Me


ESTÉE KLAR

I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
