The Innovative Vocational Education for Autism project (IVEA) aims at answering to the general objectives of the Erasmus + Programme, as well as to foster the inclusion of people on the autism spectrum through employment. The project is addressed to young people with autism so they can strength their opportunities of employment throughout their lifespan. In order to reach this objective, the project will develop a European guide to promote employment for autistic people.
The IVEA project is aimed at the social inclusion of people with autism and a more focused culture on a non-discriminative and active citizenship by promoting critical thinking in across Europe. The IVEA project will contribute to the achievement of different objectives related to innovative approaches for addressing persons on the autism spectrum and their families while providing a new European holistic Guide for inclusion through employment. IVEA intends to create an active synergy with its partner organizations from different fields related to employment and in socio-economic sectors. This initiative will bring a more modern, dynamic, committed and professional approach through the integration of innovative methods using self-evaluation by people with autism. Usually, persons on the autism spectrum do not have the opportunity to raise their voices and opinion, including those concerning vocational training and employment. It is important that this people have the same opportunities in employment just like everyone else. The lVEA project will make a positive sociocultural impact through the creation of an interactive guide for inclusion of autistic people.
