Space, Earth and Autism

The National Autistic Society are working with the other projects in order to make everything as autism-friendly as possible!

This project focuses on access to the other RAS200 projects – and other UK science organizations – to people with autism. Space, Earth and Autism will develop training to ensure that outreach activity is accessible and enjoyable to people with autism, who can have a particular affinity for astronomy, geophysics, space and planetary sciences.

People with autism often have the same passion for lifelong learning as anyone else, yet experience significant barriers to participation. The training developed through this project will be useful for many science organizations and offers the prospect of better employment opportunities that use the specific skills of people with autism to good effect.
