Inequality of access and inclusivity: Marginalising children with ‘invisible’ disabilities and their experience of  landscapesThe aim of this project is to provide an evaluation of the access disability policy of heritage organisations to identify gaps in accommodation and support provided to those with unseen disabilities, such as ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), in landscape initiatives and cultural heritage activities. It explores ways to recognise the needs for children and young people with ASD in policy and practice. It provides opportunities for children and their carers to be integrated in the decision making process, where it makes a difference to their well-being, as well as expanding their possibilities for experiencing landscapes.

This project is funded by the Landscape Research Group. For more information, see http://www.landscaperesearch.org/.
