The Space Place
Welcome to the Space Place.
The Space Place is series of films about a space museum especially designed for young children, particularly those with autism. The museum is full of model space vehicles and rockets with friendly faces.
"The Space Place is fantastic – the characters' animated facial
expressions show important emotions in the context of an engaging storyline. This is an invaluable learning resource for children on the
autism spectrum, who can also benefit from the accompanying interactive games. I fully endorse this product."
Dr Janine Spencer, developmental psychologist, specialising in children with autism.
"... the series could be used as an effective tool to improve the impairments children with ASD suffer from. These findings have major practical implications for the child, family and educators as just a short course of ‘The Space Place’ (Lever, 2008) can improve emotional comprehension and may be able to improve the day to day life of children with ASD."
Mishca Hughes, in a research study into the effectiveness of The Space Place as a tool at Brunel University 2012.
If you're new to the Space Place then let me tell you a secret, but don't tell anyone else. When George, the caretaker, locks up for the night all the model space vehicles come to life!! If you don't believe me then take a look at an episode.
Feel free to look around. And come back often there is always something new happening at The Space Place.
