PT4ASD

Physical therapy as a tool for developing social-emotional, non-verbal communication and relationships skills of youngsters with ASD.

The goal of the project “Physical therapy as a tool for developing social-emotional, non-verbal communication and relationships skills of young people with ASD” (PT4ASD) is to empower and improve the capacities of institutions in order to help these young people. The project includes building an online platform to benefit all the people of interest and improve the competencies and professional development of educators who work with students with ASD.

This project also aims to raise awareness about students with ASD and promote inclusion. Applying the methodology for improving communication and social skills through creative games in different languages can be extremely useful for students with ASD. Furthermore, an online handbook will be designed to provide the parents and educators with the support they need.

The goal is to, by using the best practices, improve the capacity of organisations working with young people with ASD to improve their motor coordination, social-emotional and nonverbal communication, as well as their ability to maintain relationships.

Educators and trainers will learn about the challenges for young people with ASD in their development of communication-, social-, emotional- and life skills. In addition, they will master the skills to provide help through physical therapy to young people who are dealing with these problems.

Developing innovative methods in the field of education of individuals with ASD, supporting the personal development of students, and increasing the competencies of teachers are just some of the many planned project outcomes.

The project is carried out in collaboration with partners from Turkey, Ireland, Greece, Spain and Serbia and supported by the Erasmus+ program

Erasmus+ Project number: 2022-1-TR01-KA220-SCH-000085026.

The project period is 31/12-2022 – 30/12-2024.
