Autism is experiencing alarming growth in all areas, worldwide, with an estimated 1 in 61 children being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Also, autism appears more often in boys than in girls (the proportion being 4 to 1). Characteristic of children with autism are communication and language problems, socialization and repetitive behaviors, self-stimulation and restricted interests related to people or activities. With the help of recovery therapies, the results appear even though they sometimes flare, and sometimes they are seen only after one month from the beginning of the therapy.
Therefore, the final object, at the Association for Therapeutic Intervention in Autism (AITA) is not to make children with autism geniuses, but to make children less and less autistic, and especially more and more happy. . And in almost 9 years of activity I saw many children smiling, many happy families!
Why International Autism Conference Bucharest - IACB 2017?
International Autism Conference Bucharest - IACB 2017 is an event dedicated entirely to people experiencing autism, discussing the therapies that have proven effective in significantly improving the lives of people affected by autism. The idea of this event was born out of caring for the little ones affected by autism, from the passion for our profession, from the conviction that slowly but surely we can maximize the potential of the children and give families a hope for a better family life.
Life with a person with autism is fraught with challenges whether you are parent, brother, sister, grandfather, classmate, playmate, educator, teacher, therapist, psychologist, doctor. Life becomes a little different and requires a different level of understanding, patience, acceptance and to adjust the level of expectations and preparation for a beautiful and valuable life information is essential.
We are waiting for you at IACB 2017 with an impressive list of Romanian and foreign readers!
