The International Autism Academy is an educational platform for all interested in autism: educators, public figures, officials, parents, and family members who are raising autistic children. We discover and explain the world of autism, teach how to navigate in it.
The Academy started working with a series of online webinars from practitioners, parents, and autistic people during the challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic. We answered the most difficult questions and highlighting exciting issues. The webinars were held in the format of online streams on the ‘Child with a future’ Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Childwithfuture.
