What is the House of Autism?
One of the first goals of the association is to set up the House of Autism. It will be a place of warm welcome, listening and accompaniment that will offer families a stop-over to relieve them for a few hours. It will provide autistic people and their families with tailored training and services. The House of Autism will be hosted by volunteer parents and professionals trained in autism and good practices. Our approach is respectful and in line with the cognitive-behavioural methods that guide our modes of action and intervention, while remaining open to other approaches. Various workshops, seminars, trainings and meetings will be organized as soon as the house opens. For instance :
- Aperitifs : a support and speech group that allows autistic people and their families to meet and exchange experiences. To be able to express one’s difficulties but also their desires. Develop leisure, culture, sport and respite activities together.
- Creative workshops to develop time schedules, mixed meeting workshops, psycho-educational workshops.
- Organizing debates and conferences for all audiences.
- Allowing the spreading of information via the website.
