OK, this seems to work...

(defun  my-flyspell-auto-correct-and-space ()
  (flyspell-auto-correct-word)    ;; Auto-correct the word at point
  (when (not (or (looking-at " ") ;; If after the correction we are in the
                 (eolp)))         ;; middle of the word, forward to the end
      (forward-word))             ;; of the word.
  (insert " "))                   ;; insert a space

...except for one part—how to bind the SPC key to this function?

I tried this...

(global-set-key "SPC" 'my-flyspell-auto-correct-and-space)

...but that doesn't work.

(Thanks to Robin Joy for the solution:
