About the Research

Enacting Autism and Inclusion is a Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice multimedia storytelling project led by researcher Patty Douglas to bring together autistic people, family members, educators and artists to rethink educational inclusion in ways that desire the difference of autism. Autism and Inclusion is phase one of the larger project, Enacting Critical Disability Communities in Education, a research grant led by Patty and funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Phase two of this larger project will share multimedia stories created in our storytelling workshops along with a short documentary about the project to foster professional and public awareness about autism and inclusion through forums such as professional development workshops with educators and film festivals.
