St. Petersburg - Autism Friendly
December 27, 2018 12:24


Museums and the airport of St. Petersburg will create a special infrastructure for people with autism.

The center "Anton is right here" launches its new project "autism friendly", which aims to create a friendly environment in the city for people with autism.

According to the press service of the center, the  project  will make the city infrastructure  comfortable for people with ASD (autism spectrum disorders).

The project aims to create a community of urban organizations that are ready to interact with people with disabilities. For people with autism, this means expanding their social capabilities. For the city - expanding social and cultural boundaries.

One of the first participants to join the project community is the city’s museums. Now nine museums take part in the project: the Hermitage, the Russian Museum, the Manezh Central Exhibition Hall, the Museum of Political History of Russia, the Faberge Museum, the Anna Akhmatova Museum at the Fountain House, the ROSPHOTO, the Gatchina Museum, and the Art Glass Museum.

The project participants are also Pulkovo Airport, Annenkirche, the project "New Holland: cultural urbanization", and the Finnish Institute in St. Petersburg.

Within the framework of the Autism Friendly project, platforms receive tools and informational support in order to adapt their infrastructure for people with autism and behavioral patterns and communication, and create a host environment for them.

All organizations receive informational support of the Center (trainings, consultations, materials, help of specialists), support tools for people with autism and recommendations for their implementation (social stories, visual support, space zoning).

The “Center Anton is right here” supports people with autism and sets itself the task of making St. Petersburg truly a city for everyone, where there are no “right” or “wrong people”, where everyone has the opportunity to meet, make friends, share experiences, walk in museums and clinics, study, and work.
