Abstract


15 years ago, on 22 May, 2000, the Mace­donian Scientific Society for Autism (MSSA) was established. From that day until today MSSA has left a huge impact in the field of raising the public awareness, providing assistance to parents and children with autism, formation of public opinion about the autism issues, making a huge contribution, especially in terms of the science of autism. In few words, MSSA has left a mark not only inMacedonia, but also in many countries in the region and with its constant, hard-wor­king and scientifically underpinned practice.

Today MSSA has 60 members1, most of whom are highly educated experts who, in the last 15 years, have contributed in different ways in the field of education, rehabilitation and treatment of people with autism. As a main indicator for this are the 50 and more published papers2 in renowned international journals as well as in Macedonian journals such as the Journal of Special Education and Rehabilitation.
