What are the steps and latest research on the successful integration of people with autism into society?
People with autism face extreme difficulties in adapting to daily activities, developing social skills and building relationships with others. They are deprived of the ability to organize their knowledge and use the accumulated experience, and this in turn prevents them from navigating and adjusting to the social environment. International scientific research on the topic shows specialized therapies and systematic work with specialists in the field support the building of more complete personalities among people with autism of all ages.
