The Association of Parents, Guardians and Friends of Autistic Children “SOS” founded in 1978 a Center of Therapeutic Special Education for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Intellectual Disabilities (ID). The Association has been recognized by the Greek Government as an authorized charity organization (ΦΕΚ 1078/B/1998). Our scope is to provide services for the development and maintenance of a satisfactory level of functionality of the target population in daily living activities and to promote their inclusion to the community.

The Center provides comfortable and special equipped areas, sport facilities, bicycle trails, a football field (5x5), two playgrounds and a specially designed environment with trees, plants and flowers, for the better and multidimensional development of all the students, as well as for their leisure and educational activities.
