The non-profit’s mission is to provide a platform for the diverse voices of people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in Portugal, as well as to promote the acceptance and inclusion of autistic people in their communities through the development of training, mentoring, support, research and inclusion projects in the areas of health, education and employment, among others. We also intend to develop partnerships with other organizations, companies, autistic people and their families, health or education professionals, for the creation of an inclusive society for autistic people and their families. The association guides its action by supporting and defending autistic people, to fight for their inclusion and acceptance, refusing ASD as a disease, but accepting it as Neurodiversity (neurological diversity).
