SOSW Centrum Autyzmu i CZR

description of organisation

Centre for Autism (SOSW Centrum Autyzmu i Całościowych Zaburzeń Rozwojowych) is an educational establishment addressed for autistic and mentally disabled children and youth, between 3 and 24 years old. Centre for Autism consists of Preschool, Primary School, Gymnasium, Secondary School, Vocational School and School Preparing for Work for mentally disabled adolescents.

Students attend classes from Monday to Friday, starting usually at 8 AM and going back home at 4 PM. Depending on students abilities, school differentiates the programme and teaching methods focusing on personal needs of each one.
School finds it important to use supportive methods of communication (alternative communication), as majority of participants are non-verbal students. School also addresses its offer to the younger children, proposing afternoon development-support activities.

School’s mission is to create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and safe. AC is the place where student’s needs are noticed and fulfilled, going along with parents and staff needs to achieve the highest learning outcomes.

Centre for Autism hosts EVS volunteers since 2014. Volunteers take part in different kind of activities: swimming, gardening, arts & crafts, pottery, music, cooking, hippo therapy, English and French lessons, social trainings and classes with preschoolers.
