The Gateway Project

This Gateway Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison aims to serve as a gateway to research that is committed to the following values:

  • Inclusion: Studies have been developed in collaboration or consultation with individuals on the autistic spectrum.
  • Respect: Strengths-based and respectful perspectives and language are used in all phases of research including reporting.
  • Accessibility: Every attempt is made to create research participation materials that are physically and culturally accessible to all participants.
  • Relevance: Research questions are relevant and useful to the autistic adult community.

The Gateway Project is recruiting participants on the autistic spectrum and participants with and without disabilities for a series of continuing Internet-based research studies on topics such as health care, well-being, and problem solving.

Who can participate: Participants must be 18 years or older and must have access to the Internet. Participants may reside anywhere in the world, but all research studies will be in English.
