Filip JURTOSKI

Abstract


The Macedonian scientific society for autism
(MSSA) has finished conducting the second
year of the project „Equity and social inclusion
through positive parenting“ together
with their partner organizations and universities
from Great Britain, Croatia, Cyprus and
Belgium. From the very beginning, the project
has the goal to conduct training sessions
which are specifically designed for parents of
children with autism and who look into subjects
and areas which the parents themselves
have chosen through previous conducted research
based on their need for knowledge for
certain specific areas of the autistic spectrum
disorder (ASD). So far there have been 5 training
sessions that were held, and there are 2
more training sessions that are planned to be
held until the end of the project which will be
conducted in Bitola and probably Debar. As
one of the goals of the project is to hold conferences
in each partner country where we inform
the wider public about the project and its
achievements, as well as which methods and
in which ways should be implemented so that
we improve the condition of the people with
ASD and their families. The next conference
that will be held is on the 1st of November in
the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle for
Independence in Skopje, and it will be intended
primarily for parents of children with ASD
and professionals from the field of autism. All
