Un posto dove mangiare? Non soltanto. La Trattoria degli Amici si trova a Roma in pieno centro, a due passi da Santa Maria in Trastevere. E' gestita da ragazzi "speciali" (una cooperativa di ragazzi handicappati) che vi aspettano per offrirvi prelibatezze di ogni genere, tutti i giorni dalle 19,30 alle 23,30 (Domenica esclusa).
L'indirizzo è Trattoria degli Amici / Piazza Sant'Egidio,6 00153 Roma Telefono 06/5806033. BUON APPETITO!
The Scottish Autism Society, which is involved in autism care, support and education, organises an impressive array of events, for example walking the Great Wall of China and treks to Macchu Piccu, to reach their (UK) 5 million goal for a new school which will be the most advanced educsaztion centre in the world for autistic students.

This "state of the art" school will be custom/designed to include the many features conducive and supportive of autistics' needs, for example an accoustical cladding to avoid echoes (which avoids unexpected noises and events).

The November 2001 Great Wall of China Walk had 89 participants sponsored by companies, family and friends. Shortly the Scottish Autism Society wweb site will present pictures of these interesting adventures.

Underway at this moment is their seven day "West Highland Wander" along Scotland's best known distance walk, covering 97 miles beginning at Loch Lomond and ending at the foot of the highest mountain Ben Nevis. Also one can visit the site www.west/highland/way.co.uk site about this event.

Further temptations include, on Borneo, trekking to the summit of Mt Kilibaru (a 200 kilometre cycle ride), as well as white/water rafting and scuba diving. If terra firma is insufficiently exciting, one can take the challenge of the Parachute Jumps which are in aid of the Scottish Society.

Cara Paola,
Purtroppo non sono potuta venire alla tua, come al solito, splendida iniziativa per un'udienza che è durata fino al primo pomeriggio. So che ha avuto grande risalto anche in radio e televisione. Il tema è uno di quelli che meriterebbe un risalto sempre maggiore
Tu pensa che noi abbiamo intenzione di diffondere una canzone inedita di Bennato e dare il ricavato proprio per i bambini che sono le vere vittime della guerra, sia chi la vive nei luoghi dove quotidianamente si svolgono questi massacri senza fine, sia anche per quelli che ricevono ogni giorno questo tipo di informazione dai mass media, informazione che sicuramente altera il rapporto di fiducia che un minore / specialmente molto piccolo/ deve avere con la vita e le sue prospettive.
Ho detto a tutti i miei amici che queste iniziativa deve proseguire.
Spero di vederti al più presto e tanti complimenti ancora.
Avv. Prof. Paola Balducci

Seminario sull'Autismo il 10, 11, 12 Maggio a Roma organizata dall’Associazione Anni Verdi

Il sito www.anniverdi.org dell'Associazione Anni Verdi (promotrice del Seminario) è stato uno dei primi siti dedicati all'Autismo. In particolare, si tratta di una descrizione del Centro Sperimentale per lo Studio sull'Autismo, situato a Roma ed operante dal 1992. Il Centro offre un servizio di Centro diurno in cui vengono adottate procedure sperimentali volte all'incremento delle capacità comunicative e di autonomia, ed un servizio ambulatoriale, in cui vengono proposti trattamenti ad indirizzo cognitivo e comportamentale per bambini dai tre ai dodici anni.

Si prevedono inoltre soggiorni estivi e week/end terapeutici. Il centro organizza anche attività formative rivolte ad operatori del settore ed a scuole, ed offre informazioni sull'autismo a famigliari di individui autistici ed a coloro che sono impegnati in quest'area.Nel sito vengono presentati alcuni libri della casa editrice Phoenix.

L’Associazione Anni Verdi – ONLUS Centro Sperimentale per l’Autismo e L’Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata Facoltà di Medicina e Chirurgia organizzano il ciclo di seminari su: AUTISMO E DISTURBI PERVASIVI DELLO SVILUPPO (Direzione Scientifica Prof. Paolo Curatolo)

The British National Autism Society (NAS), established by parents of children with autism in 1962, offers a wide range of services including autism diagnosis and assessment, early intervention, schools and education, services for adults support and advice for familiies, training, consultancy and a vast information service.

NAS's 40th Anniversary celebrations were launched at a celebratory event, hosted by the actress , author and NAS President Jane Asher, in London on Thursday 17th January 2002. The event (marking NAS's 4 decades of groundbreaking education, care and support, championing the needs of the 500,000 people with autism in the UK) featured the unveiling of a campaign designed to shock the public into a greater awareness of autism.

This Ruby Anniversary campaign underlines the NAS's vision of a world where people with autism can be understood and respected, their needs recognised and supported so they can live their lives to the fullest potential in a well/informed and tolerant society that sees them as people, not problems.

The NAS has many active international connections as it works to forge links with other Autism organisations around the world, to share information and expertise about autism, and has established links with Eastern European countries such as Romania, Poland, Hungary, and the Ukraine. It also has strong working links with other countries such as Singapore where the NAS works in partnership with parents and professionals in Singapore since 1996 to develop a blueprint for services in Singapore.

This "Reach/Me Project", fully funded from Singapore, concentrates on the more able child with Asperger syndrome and seeks to enable mainstream education to be accessed and supported through a specialist outreach teacher. The project will include the development of information and diagnostic services to support the needs of the wider group of people with autistic spectrum disorders. The NAS is providing a formal advisory position to the project, offering continuing consultative support and training. One can find out more about the project by visiting the Reach/Me website via NAS's site.

The NAS often conducts its information projects in groundbreaking ways such as its Autism 1999 Internet Conference which was conducted OnLine. The papers of this important conference continue to be accessible via www.autismconnect.org (or via NAS's web site).

The Prime Minister Tony Blair has written the following letter to encourage an increased understanding of autism and to underline the importance of the UK’s Autism Awareness Year 2002 :



10 Downing Street
London SW1A 2AA<

February 2002

Autism is one of the least understood but most frightening and difficult of conditions. I welcome initiatives which aim to improve our knowledge and understanding in this area. People with autism lead isolated lives. Their social and communication difficulties place great stress on their families. It is important that we should all be sensitive to their needs.Autism Awareness Year has an important contribution to make. I am pleased that Health Minister Jacqui Smith will represent the Government at the opening conference on 14 February. We will listen carefully to the messages which emerge.

I am also pleased to note how much activity has recently been stimulated on autism. This includes the independent "National Initiative on Autism: Screening and Assessment" which is due to report in 2002. The Government has also been active. The Department for Education and Skills will be issuing good practice guidance on autism in the coming months. Two reports commissioned by the Department of Health / from Dr Tony Holland on Asperger's Syndrome and from the Medical Research Council on the Epidemiology and Causes of Autism / have also recently been made available. Both of these are helping to improve our understanding of autism.

I very much hope that Autism Awareness Year will build on this work as well as being able to make its own distinct and complementary contribution. I wish it every success.

Rt Hon Tony Blair MP
The Prime Minister
