Bucharest, March 20, 2023: The NIA Association, established with the aim of integrating and accepting neurodivergents in Romania, announces the launch, in partnership with the Giurgiu County Council, of the first large-scale project in Romania that will offer solutions and support for a decent life, for adults and adolescents with autism and their families.

For many years now, AUTISM and I have had a partnership. I give him time, attention, patience, a part of my sleep, sometimes of my strength, and he rewards me with the most sincere and pure form of love. He only accepts me smiling, always motivated and determined to know his story and purpose among us, instilling in me empathy and forcing me to become more efficient every day.

What we set out to do
and why.

Autistic children become teenagers and then adults. Unfortunately, not everyone integrates into society and for those who do not succeed, the scenarios become unhappy.

Currently, there is no alternative support for adults with severe autism and a low level of independence, and the quality of life for them and their families is tragic.

The NIA Association was born from the pressing need to offer a chance and to come to the aid of teenagers and adults who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, as well as their families, who today live in isolation, in the absence of any solutions appropriate to their needs.
