Centre For Autism
We have set up a safe and structured environment for persons with autism, so as to provide high-level, specialized services.
Zoodohos Pigi is a founding member of the Greek Society Of Care For Autistic Persons. We have worked closely with the department of Autism of Seven Sisters Day Care Centre, London, from 1992 to 1999. We are currently partners with St. Mark's Day Centre, London, a member of the British Autism Society. We have also been working closely with the University of Mons, School of Orthopedagogics, Belgium, since 1992.
The Department operates on a daily basis, from 08:00 to 15:00, except Saturdays and Sundays.
It is housed in the facilities of Zoodohos Pigi, Nea Alikarnassos, Heraklion.
It is staffed with specialized personnel, assessed through training and evaluation seminars. The staff undergo continuing training in Greece and abroad.
The programme and training methods are based on the abilities of each individual -determined through tests- and individualized programmes after working closely with the parents. They include:
Self Social Training
Drama - therapy
Art - therapy
