ErasmusPT4ASDSchool stories

The International School was chosen once again to represent Serbia in the international Erasmus+ project. 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 to implement social-emotional and non-verbal communication of young people with ASD. This will also include building an online platform to benefit all the people of interest and improving the competencies and professional development of educators who work with students with ASD.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability which often affects social communication and interaction and restricted or repetitive behaviours or interests.

Raising awareness about students with ASD and promoting inclusion

This project also aims to raise awareness about students with ASD and promote inclusion. Students with ASD will benefit from the developed methodology aimed at improving communication and social skills through creative games in different languages. Furthermore, an online handbook will be designed in order to provide the support needed by parents and educators.

This project has gathered experts from prestigious organisations from Turkey, Denmark, Spain, Ireland and Greece, while International School has been chosen to participate as a prominent educational institution from Serbia.

We couldn’t be happier to take part in this project and promote the educational values that are at the core of our mission and vision – the right to quality education for all!
