The Affinity Project

This is a survey conducted by Sidekicks and Autism Speaks (I know, this surprises some of you). The survey is to identify the different passions that autistic people have. In my eyes, the information could be used to create programs and projects to help autistic people use their passions to contribute actively to society in ways that best suit them.

This is very much the general idea I had with my thesis. To see an organization like Autism Speaks, who has so much influence and yet such a turbulent relationship with the autism community, help spearhead a survey like this is very encouraging.

Oh, and it has prizes for participants, so…there’s that.
