Aspie Kit, Publishing, Work with the community

In 2016 within my organisation I was able to fundraise up to 8.000 Euro and I could copyright and edit my first publication Aspie Kit, an educational kit to the schools. It consists of five different units that collects testimonies, insights and educational games and activities for use in the classroom. It guides the user along a gradual path of knowledge and understanding of autistic spectrum conditions. It differs from any other kit because it has been created involving people with autism spectrum condition. This book has been introduced by a campaign and an event I entirely achieved involving media, press and TV. 

Autism is a phenomenon on the rise. There have been 60,000 cases recently, with around one in every 90 people diagnosed with the condition, without considering the non-diagnosed, family members, professionals other interested parties. It covers a very large catchment area. There is more and more need from those involved in the development of educational systems. It is vital that structures are informed and updated about the issue.
