Expected results:

Social inclusion is the basis of EU socio-economic development, strategy and policy. In the same time, socially excluded persons are one of the biggest problems in BiH. BiH is the signatory of important documents in human and other rights protection of disabled persons; hence the environment in which this support is provided is not always adequate. Although there is no observation/diagnostic ceneter for this disability, autism, Association of persons with autism parents from Tuzla, has 80 children members with autistic spectre disorders, mostly with no treatment. Nonexistence of medical/pedagogic/social system of services for persons with autism threatens their basic human rights for health, rehabilitation, education, work and all other rights.
