Identification of good practices across Europe
At this initial stage, partners will aim to collect good practices for the success for inclusion of young people with autism in the community’s activities. To do this they will rely on focus groups and round tables made up of young people with autism, the families of young people with autism and experts. Once the good practices are identified, partners will begin to develop course curriculums to test.
Development of test and learning materials
In the framework of the project, specific courses for young mediators and community staff members will be developed and tested. Once the young mediators have completed the courses, they will carry out an internship to put the theoretical knowledge they have gained into practice. The goal of the pilot methodology is to include children and youngsters on the autism spectrum in regular community structures.
Launch of a European Guide
As a final result of the project, a European guide will be made available. It will be based on the developed learnings and knowledge and will act as a practical tool not only for disseminating course and project results but also for providing tips and strategies for use in different countries.
