The YMI Project finds ways to include autistic people in the community
The goal of our project is to improve
the social inclusion of autistic people.
Social inclusion means that people with
intellectual disabilities can access
the same community activities as other people.
Our project partners created a list of
good practices for social inclusion.
A good practice is an
accepted way of doing something.
To find good practices,
project partners did a literature review.
A literature review is a document with information
that already exists on a topic.
Project partners also had meetings with autistic people, family members of autistic people
and autism experts.
A good practice is understanding the barriers
for inclusion that autistic people face.
A good practice is trying to remove barriers
so autistic people can have equal opportunities.
A good practice is involving autistic people
in projects and activities.
A good practice is involving policy-makers, companies, institutions, NGOs and general society in projects and activities.
A good practice is showing positive experiences.
A good practice is promoting the role of
the mediators for inclusion.
A mediator for inclusion is someone who
helps include autistic people in community activities.
A good mediator is understanding and patient.
A good mediator is available to help
at certain times and places when they are needed.
A good mediator helps autistic people
learn ways to participate in activities.
A good mediator has great social skills.
A good mediator works with
the families of autistic people.
The next step of the project is to
design a course for the mediators for inclusion.
The course will teach young people
to be good mediators.
