Activities

Our foundation was established

to develop autistic children.

Childhood Autism Foundation provides assistance-dog therapy for autistic children in Gennaro Verolino Elementary School from school year 2019/2020. The sessions are held by Krisztina Nagy assistance dog trainer on behalf of Azúr Assistance Dog Association.

In 2020 we will be able to carry out development activities with the support of the MVM Group.

Please read our goals listed below!

Goals

Sensory room

Our first long-term plan is to set up a sensory room that improves the focusing and learning abilities of autistic children. We are thinking of creating a unique room that works for all senses and provides excellent recreational program at the same time.

Recreational camp

Our second long-term plan is to create a recreational camp for autistic children that ideally provides on-site therapeutic sessions targeted by the foundation.

Child transport

Our medium-term plan is to provide a service that would resolve the transport of autistic children in situations where the presence of the child is necessary for certain administration procedures - accompanied by a special education teacher, if necessary.

Dog, horse therapy

Our short-term plan is to provide animal assisted therapy, primarily with the involvement of dogs and horses.

What do we offer to our supporters?

Supporters can display their names and logos on our website and in our video blog, as well. In addition, it is possible to present themselves with molinos and flyers during our thematic sessions for autistic children.

Please support our initiative if you can. Thank you!

About autism

Autism is “invisible” to people in the sense that many affected with autism look normal like anybody else. Despite autism being one of the most common developmental disabilities, there is not enough information about it.

Isolation, unemployment and lack of education have been assumed to be inevitable consequences of the limitations imposed by autism itself. The inferior economic and social status of people with autism is not a consequence of the disability itself but rather the result of societal barriers and prejudices. As with racial minorities and women, only true acceptance can change the status.

Our foundation is asking for acceptance. Little by little we are changing the approach and our goal is to increase the potential of autistic people in many areas of life.

An insight to the everyday life:

Today however, we are hearing more and more amazing stories about children on the autism spectrum displaying talents and skills no one believed possible. Some develop computer applications, some play music with amazing talent and some non-speaking children display writing abilities that show a deep understanding of language and life.

Understanding and acceptation:

There is an increasing number of co-operation in which companies employ people with autism. There is a need for employers’ openness to hire people with disabilities to become socially accepted as workers. In these cases, sensitization programs precede the entry into work during which programs the autistic worker can get acquainted with their future colleagues and thus get closer together. However, the parties are currently “attending a training course”. Innovative-minded employers are open and job organizers are glad for every opportunity.

Difficulties with social communication:

Individuals on the autistic spectrum can have great difficulty in understanding the social rules that are the norm for the rest of us. Individuals with autism may have little or no speech and they may repeat phrases without understanding them. Many people with autism can be very literal and can be confused by phrases such as “raining cats and dogs” or “full of beans”. Frequently there is no understanding of humor. Speech itself may sound mechanical or expressionless.

Problems with flexibility of thought:

The lives of people with autism need to be predictable and the individual may become very anxious or even aggressive if change is introduced without warning. Routines are very important. Many people with autism use lists to prompt them about what comes next and the need for the list continues even when those around them think the individual knows the task well. It is common for people with autism to have a keen interest in numbers, timetables or weather.

Abnormal sensory responses:

People with autism can have overactive or underactive senses. They might be oversensitive to certain sounds, bright lights, textures, colors and tastes. On the other hand, they might have a very high threshold of pain and appear to not hear what someone is saying, nor see what someone is pointing out.
An individual with autism might also experience difficulties with spatial awareness and with balance. This means that rooms might feel smaller or larger than they actually are. It can also explain why some people with autism might rock, sway or spin.
