The Central Institute of Pedagogical Sciences and Unicef´s representation in Cuba have been developing for several years the “Muéstrales el camino” (Show them the way) initiative, which provides informative materials to experts and relatives as a result of research programs by Cuban specialists.

Dr. Imilla Campory and Dr. Yaima Demósthene told Prensa Latina that at this stage specialized brochures and didactic material were published aimed at achieving an understanding of this disorder and to know this people´s potentials.

A particularity of these initiatives is that they have into account Cuban culture and reality and in this sense, the creation of a series of pictograms stands out, which are the first of their kind in the country. These are images used as visual support for comunication with autistic people.

As a result of this process, the child can be placed in the special education for autistic children, remain in the general education or attend a combined one with other special education.

The UN decreed April 2 as the World Autism Awareness Day with the aim of improving life quality of both children and adults.

This year´s celebration has a motto A happy Journey through Life and its purpose is for society to recognize and support autistic people and their families´ rights to live a happy life.
