Since January 2016, Autism-Europe has become a full partner in three new European projects, in addition to continuing its activity in another two that are still ongoing (ASDEU Project and ESIPP project):
1) The Training in Sexual Education for People with Disabilities Project (TRASE) is set to develop and evaluate a training course for adult educators, carers, professionals, teachers and parents in the field of sexual education for people with autism and intellectual disabilities. The training course will be based on the materials developed in the SEAD project and will also develop additional tools. The project will run until 2017 in the framework of the Erasmus + Programme.
2) The Multi-modal Human-Robot Interaction for Teaching and Expanding Social Imagination in Autistic Children Project (DE-ENIGMA)aims to create and evaluate the effectiveness of robot-based technology, directed at helping children with autism. This technology will enable the realisation of robust, context-sensitive, multimodal and naturalistic human-robot interaction (HRI) aimed at enhancing the social imagination skills of children with autism. The project, included in the framework of the Horizon 2020 Programme, will be ongoing until 2019.
3) The Autism and New Technologies Project is a three-year project supported by the Orange Fondation and the UEFA Fondation and led by FIRAH. It will provide a scientific evaluation of the use of new technologies for children with autism, between the ages of 2 to 18. The project aims to facilitate access to educational material and equipment derived from new technologies, and adapted to the specific needs of children with autism and their families, such as robots or tablets.
