The research I am doing is centered on the socio-environmental aspects of autism. City and regional planners are responsible for designing the environment and creating policies that regulate the public realm and ways of coexistence in it. My hypothesis for the research is that planners are willing to create inclusive public participation and need ways to know how this communication can be accomplished. Through the increase of the participation level of people with autism in the planning process, we can uncover the social construction of differences, and advocate for autism acceptance and inclusion in the policymaking discourse.
The research goal is to collaborate with autistic communities through participatory action research methods.
Inclusion Criteria: adults with autism 18 years and older
