Ευρωπαϊκό έργο "VESTA"

The project aims to make a contribution by improving the labor chances of people with autism, and to develop friendly settings for training from a continuum of different types of supported employment.
The project will, through joint actions, develop a practical model of vocational training for people with autism spectrum disorders. The project beneficiaries will be adults with autism and adult educational staff. Adults with autism are at risk of social exclusion due to deficits in social and communication skills. European labor markets provide appropriate job opportunities, but without adequate preparation, people with autism are not able to work independently. Currently, it is clear that there is a need to support such people in the development of key social and professional competence.


The methods and tools will be available in four languages (EN, PL, CZ, LT, EL)


The project output:
a) method of training of vocational competencies in autistic adult people
b) the multimedia training program for developing vocational competencies in autistic adults (PL, LT, EL, CZ, EN)
c) the guide for assistants of autistic persons (PL, LT, EL, CZ, EN);
d) the organization of in-service training course for adult educational staff (assistants and volunteers) who work with autistic people within the vocational training program
e) the project leaflet (PL, LT, EL, CZ, EN)
f) the project website
