Passing along this information on the Gateway Project.
Autistic Self-Advocacy Network
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.
