Class Equipment Support for Children with Autism

Summary

43.000 of 575.000 autistic people aged 0-19 have access to education in Turkey. The classrooms of autistic children are insufficient. In addition to the physical equipment, the teachers need to be educated about technological tools, behavior problems and individualized teaching. Parents of the children with autism need support and education. Autistic children and young individuals, their teachers and their parents are directly served within the scope of this project.

Challenge

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental difference that manifests itself in the first years of life. The only way that has been scientifically proven to be effective for children with ASD is special education based on early, intensive, continuous, individual and behavioral approaches. There are 575.000 children with autism at school age in Turkey. Unfortunately, only 43.000 of 575.000 autistic people aged 0-19 have access to education.

Solution

If the equipment requirements in the classes of autistic children are eliminated, children will reach high quality special education. While implementing technology-based solutions in the special education of children with ASD will motivate both the student and the teacher, new generation speech and sound producing devices will improve the speech, communication and social skills of children.In addition, teacher and parent training will contribute to the professional empowerment of teachers.

Long-Term Impact

Autistic children can access the intense and qualified special education they need, most of them can find a place in society, lead an independent life and participate in the economy.
