Education Projects

Digital Inclusive Tools

The project “Digital Inclusive Tool” (Digitool) was collaboratively designed to train teachers (in mainstream education / special education), to work with autistic students using ICT. Through this training, Digitool will allow, indirectly, the training of autistic students to use these tools. Thus, it is proposed to design and pilot test, in Portugal, Spain and Italy, a new inclusive ICT approach in the scope of autism, which promotes the communication, socialisation and learning of these students, enhancing their school success.

Autism Spectrum Disorder- Empowering and Supporting Teachers (2018-2020)

The purpose of this project is to empower specialist teachers in Croatia, Poland and the Republic of North Macedonia to support the effective inclusion of autistic children in education, by providing them with appropriate skills, knowledge, effective strategies and locally-appropriate training. The project will learn from what is currently taking place within these three countries and will be modelled on existing practices in the United Kingdom and will closely follow the work undertaken in the Erasmus+ funded ESIPP & IESPESA projects.

Training Educational Personnel on Communication systems and Teaching Approaches for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (2018-2020)

Running from October 2018 to September 2020, the project was funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus + Programme. The strategic partnership’s objective was to exchange knowledge regarding the development of a large-scale training programme on the use of alternative communication systems for autistic children in the countries involved in the project.

European childminders training to support inclusion of children with autism spectrum disorder (2018-2020)

The European childminders training to support inclusion of children on the autism spectrum (ChildIN) project focused on developing a training for European childminders to foster the inclusion of children on the autism spectrum. Running from November 2018 to October 2020, the project was funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme.

Together we grow (2017- 2019)

The Early aTTention for the inclusion of children with autism spectrum disorders in Early Childhood Education and Care systems (ETTECEC) project focuses on offering education and training for pre-school teachers to reduce disparities and foster inclusion. Running from October 2017, this two-year project is funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus + Programme.

Employment projects

My Virtual World: “My Virtual World – 3D Job Training for Autism” aims at upskilling Vocational and Educational educators and trainers using 3D Technology, along with raising awareness on how to make the labour market autism-friendly and helping employers to adopt better practices for involving employees on the autism spectrum.

Talenti Latenti aims to develop adequate tools and procedures to certify the skills of neurodivergent people. This would enable them to increase their job opportunities and have access to a more independent life.

Autism Spectrum Pathways will provide training to autistic jobseekers, VET schools and employers to increase the employment opportunities of individuals on the autism spectrum and improve the accessibility and inclusion of autistic employees in the workplace.
