DiLASD

Distance Learning for Students and Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Short Description

The aim of the DiLASD project is to provide social educators and social workers with competences in assisting students and kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families remotely.

Due to the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, schools in Europe opted to switch to online remote courses with a view to keeping their students and teaching staff safe during the pandemic emergency. The results of that have been tragic for students and kids with special needs as educational institutions were not prepared for supporting them at distance. As a consequence, parents of children with special needs found themselves in a new burdensome situation, becoming responsible for continuing their children’s education at home.

The main objective of the project is the active learning of individuals with ASD, according to their personal abilities, through the use of digital technology. Remote teaching-learning and online assistance will decrease their marginalization, improving their independence and well-being.
