A panel of discussion has been organized by the Faculty of Psychology, to mark April 2 – World Autism Awareness Day together with the NGO “Autism Speaks”. Part of the discussion panel were representatives, psychologists and speech therapists from “Autism Speaks” as well as professors from the Faculty of Psychology.
The panelists talked about the work and commitment they make for autistic children, aiming at learning behaviors, their advancement in life and constant contact with parents. The challenges that are often encountered were also mentioned, such as the reluctance of parents or the dilemmas created by prejudices about this part of society.
The students of the Faculty of Psychology asked questions about the operation of this center, the methods and the progress they see in the treated children.
