Our goal is to improve living conditions and social inclusion of children with autistic spectrum disorders in the northern part of Romania.
Baia Mare Autism Association was founded by highly motivated parents in 2008.
All our actions and activities take into account the needs of children with autistic spectrum disorders. The quality of our service for children with disabilities has allowed us accreditation on social services. In these five years of activity we have developed, diversified and now offer recovery programs for children with other diagnoses as well: pervasive developmental disorders, mental retardation, language delay and ADHD.
The Day Center opened in 2010 offers specialized services: therapeutic intervention, family counseling, socialization and leisure activities, community reintegration, health assistance. A multidisciplinary team consisting of psychologists, movement therapist, speech therapist, art therapist, music therapist, parents counselor assists the child and family. Therapy involves working in a one -to - one approach on a tight customized schedule adapted to the childs needs, with clearly established targets.
Other current activities include: organizing regular awareness campaigns to increase the general level of knowledge about autism for different types of public; attending different events for raising awareness and promoting the organization and its sponsors; courses for different categories: parents, teachers, other professionals; developing our volunteers network; applying for different funds and grants in order to develop our support for the community and also new services.
