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.”

VIS A VIS 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.
