There is no cure for autism, but we succeed to integrate an autistic person in the society and hence enrich this society by the difference.
It is important to assess carefully and regularly, strengths, weaknesses and needs of the autistic person to better support his evolution.
No matter which method is used, the involvement of the parent is crucial for the development of the child.
The evolution of autistic persons also depends on the responsibility of public authorities, the investment in research, the professional attendance, the love of their families and more important our understanding as citizens in respect of autistic’s children that are first and foremost children.
The aim of a specific education is to enable autistic persons understand their social environment, develop their abilities, reduce behaviors that are incompatible with social life and maximize their independence.
The objective of each intervention should target the autonomy and integration of the child, but above all, its well-being and consequently the well-being of his family.
“For forty years I have studied children with autism, but it is still impossible to predict who will progress and who will stagnate.”
