Some years ago, when Internet mediated communication was in its infancy in Greece, we decoded to create the first website devoted to the wonderful people and scientists of The Specialised Day Care Centre for Autistic Children, inspired by their dedication and relentless efforts to bring hope to dozens of Autistic children and their families.
This website was and continues to be dedicated to all autistic persons and their families who find the strength to keep on going despite the difficulties they face.
Since a lot of water went under the bridge in the field of Pervasive Developmental Disorders in Greece. We are proud for doing our share but at the same time recognize that still a lot needs to be done. The fight against ignorance and the stigma that follows autistic people in their daily lives is far from over. Autistic people still need our support to make it in this world of ours.
