Title: Inclusion in the Museum: A Toolkit Prototype for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Author: Kennedy, Jil
Abstract: As substantiated through academic inquiry, there is growing awareness of the benefits of inclusion in a visual art environment for those who experience autism (Integrator, 2003). In order to accomplish the creation of inclusion devices, interventions and attitudes, specific and generalized characteristics of autism need to be identified, acknowledged and accepted. This study will explore the development of strategies (tools) to shape a positive cultural experience for people with autism. If a museum or other visual art setting is not accessible to everyone, then such institutions are exclusive and not meeting the needs of a diverse society.
