After several meetings and long telephone conversations, activists of the NGO “Eternal Ukraine” decided to join the Autism Friendly Space program from the Child.ua Association ( About the work of the CHILD.UA Association ). The result of such meetings was a joint memorandum of the NGO “Eternal Ukraine” led by Volodymyr Cheslavsky and the Association of International and All-Ukrainian Public Organizations “CHILD”.
One of the achievements of the program is the creation of a Interactive map for a friendly attitude towards people with autism spectrum disorder.
An important step that guarantees real change was the discussion of legislative changes to protect the rights of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, to improve the situation with rehabilitation measures, socialization and changes to out-of-school education for special children.
By joining the AFS program together we decided to move in the following directions:
· Exchange of information on the topic;
· Holding joint events;
· Information support of each other’s activities;
· Development and participation in joint projects;
· Attracting resources, activating philanthropists in favor of building an inclusive community;
· Support for public initiatives.
The result of this collaboration is a Section F YouTube mini-film about the lives of people diagnosed with autism.
In the video you will be able to see the pupil of the program for savant children Eugene Cheslavsky, who demonstrated special abilities in the field of music: absolute hearing, ability to perform musical works on various musical instruments, which are only partially described in the film.
We offer it to your attention:
We also invite caring people and NGOs to join the mission – to create a friendly attitude towards an inclusive society.
