About the project

The Association for Autism of Slovenia successfully applied for the tender for the co-financing of projects within the programme Education, Scholarships, Apprenticeship and Youth Entrepreneurship, which is supported by the Ministry of cohesion and regional development. The subject of the public tender was a selection of projects to be allocated funds from the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014-2021.

More about the tender in the link below by clicking here.

Together with the project partners, the Association for Autism of Slovenia will conduct the first national survey on the frequency of autism in Slovenia. We will develop an online application with which we will collect data on the number of people with autism in Slovenia.

The application will remain in permanent use for the collection of this data even after the completion of the project. We will carry out a review of the situation regarding the needs of employees in education for additional professional knowledge about autism across the entire vertical, from kindergarten to college. Based on the findings, we will prepare an education model and test it in practice.

We will investigate the opinions, attitudes, needs, knowledge and willingness of employers to employ people with autism, based on which we will design an optimal model of support for employers and people with autism for successful integration into the labor market. We will employ one person with autism on a pilot basis.

“We believe in improving the situation in the field of autism in Slovenia and we are fighting for a better tomorrow.”

Project financing

The VIS A VIS project is funded by Norway with Norway Grants in the amount of 498.289 EUR. The purpose of the project is to obtain data on the number of people with autism in Slovenia, to train multipliers for the development of a new model of support for employees in education and employers, and employees of employment agencies for the successful teaching and employment of people with autism, and to develop this model as well.

The Norway Grants and the EEA Grants represent Norway’s contribution towards a green, competitive and inclusive Europe.

We developed an app.


The Association for Autism of Slovenia will, among other things, hold the first national competition under the auspices of this tender research on the frequency of autism in Slovenia. We have developed a web application in which they will enter
data on the performed diagnostics, including other parameters (age, region of residence, etc.).

The application also enables real-time input of data on newly established diagnoses, which will allow us to constantly
insight into the state of the number of persons diagnosed with autism in Slovenia.

Co-operate with us.
