Last Friday 15th we made a meeting with all members of our staff.
Firstly, we emphasized we are currently 23 members. We haven’t reached this number before!
That means we are doing a great job that is making our project grow. Congratulations team!
What do we now nowadays about autism? And what do we not know...
Internet is an infinite resource that offers immeasurable amounts of bibliography concerning ASD. Having such amount of resources can lead you sometimes to useless contents or not verified articles.
From Planeta Imaginario Foundation we want to suggest you some bibliography scientifically contrasted that we consider as a useful guide for parents and professionals about ASD.
At present it is not clear exactly what variables cause a repertory of behaviours consistent with a diagnosis of ASD3
There are probably many factors that contribute to the development and appearance of autism. Some are present at the moment of the child’s birth (genetic factors), while there may also be some environmental factors that contribute. Everything seems to indicate that there is a convergence of variables that come together in a child set off a chain reaction of symptoms. What does seem clear is that the risk of having autism increases if a member of the family has already been diagnosed. Finally it is important to emphasize that research has shown that the style of parenting is not a genuine cause, and nor is autism caused by vaccines.

In April 27th 2007 United Nations declared April 2nd as World's Autism Awarness-raising Day.That is why since then, every April 2nd Planeta Imaginario Foundation gets covered in blue to divulge what autism is, how detecting it and the most important, how treating it.
Epidemiological data on the prevalence of ASD, as reported by reputable research and websites, shows that it affects one in every 681 2 children. What seems to remain stable over time is the proportion of boys affected, between three and four times greater than the number of girls.
Planeta Imaginario Foundation took part at I Autism Awarness-raising Conference in Ibiza organized by Apfem Association.
The conference was a meeting point to enhance dialoge and think about diversity in Education for professionals and families based in Ibiza with the objective of giving tips and orientations in treating with diversity.
From planeta Imaginario Training, we wolud like to show our gratitude to all students who took our workshop "Monogr(à)fics Project", last weekend in Ibiza.
We talked about behavior and learning basics, as theoretical framework to develop the main modules during the workshop: abilities in Autonomy Habits and techniques to reduce Tantrums. From clinic approach, we learnt procedures to increase and drecease behaviors.
mHealth is part of the International Competition Centers Programme (ICCP) from Mobile World Capital Barcelona. mHealth has a triple objective: identifying opportunities in providing health services with mobile tecnologies; transforming current sanitary processes and models; promoting interoperability of sanitary services in connectivity and mobile tecnologies, building basis that allow mobile health solutions.
"Cugat.cat" interviews Planeta Imaginario Foundation to know better our task and get closer to ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder).
Planeta Imaginario Foundation launches iSecuencias 3.0 and AbaPlanet 1.0 and puts artificial intelligence at professional’s, families and children with Autustic Spectrum Disorder and Asperger Syndrome service.
Both iSecuencias and AbaPlanet have been designed by our clinic team formed by psychologists specialized in behavior with more than 20 years’ experience working with ASD children.
By launching these apps we want to bring parents and professionals two tools based on ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) methodology, that has proved its effectiveness in numerous treatment studies with ASD children.
