The main theme this evening is to enjoy Scottish music and dancing, to learn to dance right on the dance ﬂoor, experience a joy of communication and, if possible, help children and adults, suffering from autistic disorders.
Here are excerpts from the article "How Austria can restore it's status as a centre of Autism research" by prof. Gaia Novarino:
"Each year, more than 1,000 children in Austria start to show autism traits, making it crucial to diagnose and treat the condition and yet there are few enters specialised on diagnostics and treatment, families wait many months for getting tested and diagnosed, missing precious time for reabilitation, this delay is crucial.
The lack of autism specialists and treatment centers leads to a situation where many people wait for a year to get a place in a program at the Autism Centre of the MedUni Vienna. And places, covered with the state insurance plan are very limited".
Our goal, with the help of experts, doctors and specially trained teachers is to collect resources for the development of the above mentioned centers
There are lots of forms of Autism.
Thus, we support the idea by the rainman.at group of experts, that there must be a variety of offers and possibilities in order to give an autistic person a choice and create the possible conditions for individualisation, which is impossible without international networking, creating groups where not only people with autism represented, but help create public awareness for autism.

Genetic and molecular basis of neurological developmental disorders Gaia Novarino's research examines the genes underlying hereditary forms of neu-
rodevelopmental disorders such as epilepsy, intellectual disability and autism. Neu-
rodevelopmental disorders affect millions of people and are often unresponsive to
therapy. The Novarino Group uses methods from different disciplines, from molecu-
lar biology to behavioral observation, to ﬁnd common pathophysiological mecha-
nisms that underlie this group of developmental disorders.
