This free online tool includes resources on autism including reasoned description, assessed on the basis of their value in terms of learning quality, safety (this applies particularly to online games for autistic children), scientific soundness and community inclusion. These three dimensions has been assessed on the basis of a matrix designed jointly by the ChildIN partnership, that possesses high competences in all explored areas. The database will be updated until the end of the project (April 2021).
To date, the database counts with more than 200 resources in English, French, Polish and Portuguese, classified in the following main categories: Autism specificities; Selected issues related to autism; Education; Care; and Others (like sexuality, self-awareness or family).
