Abstract

TRAIL is an ERASMUS funded project seeking to respond to gaps in support and funding which exist in meeting the needs of people with ASD, to lead independent lives. The project aims to research the different ways each Country supports teenagers and young people as they move into adulthood, to establish commonalities and differences, in order to define a common approach.

Objective: Identification and sharing of best practice for professionals in supporting and enabling young autistic people lead ordinary lives, to promote inclusion and equality.

Activities:

  • Compare national plans for autism; share best practice and make recommendations that decision and policy makers can use.

  • Identify frameworks and toolkits and provide a set of resources and competencies for professionals who work with young people can use to improve their lives.

  • Transfer innovative methods and tools into different countries

  • Create a website to host resources and to sustain collaboration between different stakeholders.

Products:

  • Research study & survey to capture the social policies of the member Countries

  • Survey for best practise, training needs and experience of professionals

  • Creation of a Guide to Innovation, which will include technical and teaching materials
