What does TWCM mean?

TWCM = Together We Can Manage

TWCM = An International Project for Adults with ASD

Main goal: improve situation of people with ASD on the labour market.

The website was developed thanks to the collective project  "Together We Can Manage" (TWCM)" of APLA Praha, střední Čechy and Autism Europe aisbl. TWCM project is financed by the European Social Fund and the State Budget of the Czech Republic (Human Resources and Development Operational Programme).  

Website contains contributions of psychologues, pedagogues and of a wide range of social workers who focuse on the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Among authors are also adults with autism who decided to publish their real life stories and share their experiences from work here.

This website should not serve only as a source of information but also as an efficient communication tool for the above mentioned target groups from the Czech Republic, and abroad. Information contained on this web will be used for elaboration of a strategy for supported employment of people with ASD in the Czech Republic. Afterwards, this strategy will be presented to the Czech authorities for futher discussion and possible incorporation into the Czech legislation.

We would like to express our thanks for public support given to this project, to all our partners, authors of articles, interpreters etc. Last but not least, our gratitude belongs to Ms. Zuzana Vojtová (graphic designe of this website) and Easysoftware Co. (IT support).
