- have difficulties to understand the meaning of what is being said;

Each autistic youngster has a unique personality. It is necessary to work with each person on an individual program suited to his/her specific problems and needs, in order to have a chance for normal development and successful integration into the educational system and society. Unfortunately, in the rural areas of Eastern Europe, youth workers often continue to work with autistic youngsters using outdated methodologies. The main reasons for this are the relatively limited access to quality information on the latest working methods and lack of international interaction and exchange between organisations involved in this mission.

The number of young people with autism spectrum disorders in Europe is constantly increasing. This requires the workers who are involved in activities on behalf of the autistic youngsters continually to update their knowledge, attitudes and skills. Also it is necessary to have an active international interaction and exchange between organisations involved in this mission.
In response to these problems, YMDRAB in partnership with 4 organisations from different European countries implement a project named "The magic to communicate". Its main aim is professional training of Speech and language therapists from Eastern Europe for work with autistic youngsters and development of their cooperation for innovation and exchange of experience, skills and best practices.
