Project summary:

National level assistance for people with autism is insufficient. Thus, the project establishes a model of connecting stakeholders at the local and national level and enhances the competences of teachers, training providers and policy makers to introduce skills for work and life of people with autism in the 21st century in the field of education, training and employment. Through institutional cooperation, the project contributes to establishing a safe, creative, open, interactive, innovative and stimulating environment for people with autism, modernizes teaching approaches and contributes to improving their employment opportunities.
