From 1 to 4 May 2013, Donosti hosted the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR). This annual meeting brought together 1800 professionals and researchers from all continents and was held for the first time in continental Europe, and in a non-English-speaking country, with the aim of exchanging information in the field of research on autism spectrum alterations.
Thanks to Dr. Joaquín Fuentes Biggi,Head of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Service of Policlínica Gipuzkoa and Gautena Research Consultant and organizer of the event, ARASAAC collaborated with the organization and was present at the Kursaal Conference Center, thanks to the pioneering placement of universal design signage throughout the venue, using pictograms accessible to people with communicative and cognitive limitations.
We also collaborated in the design and publication of the D-SS INFO-PIKTO,the first free guide of universal signage of a city for visitors with communicative and congnitive limitations.
A magnificent initiative with a great commitment to awareness and sensitization in favor of accessibility for all people and in all environments.
