AASPIRE Projects

AASPIRE Healthcare Toolkit

The purpose of this project is to develop and try out an interactive healthcare toolkit. The toolkit is meant to help improve healthcare access and quality for adults on the autism spectrum. The project consists of three research studies. Results from the first two studies will be used to develop the toolkit. In the third study, we will try out the toolkit to see how it works in the real world.

This study is closed to new participants.

The "Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study" examines topics such as Internet use, identity, sense of community, well-being, and social support among adults on the autistic spectrum and adults with and without other disabilities. This information may inform future efforts to improve well-being through promoting Internet usage. Data for the "Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study" was collected as part of the Gateway Project.

The Gateway Project

Starting in 2008, the Gernsbacher Lab and the Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) worked together on the Gateway Project, a secure online registration system committed to respect, inclusion, accessibility, and community relevance. In 2012, data collection was completed on all of AASPIRE's studies through the Gateway system. The Gateway Project continues to be run by Gernsbacher Lab.
