Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition that involves persistent challenges in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, and restricted/repetitive behaviors. The effects of ASD and the severity of symptoms are different in each person. The Kiwanis International is engaged from many years in this field. The Kiwanis District Italy San Marino participates and chosen with Martin the Little Wolf and The King of the market to stay close to the children and families in everyday life during this COVID-19 time. The training offer to child and to family is for support and learn new way to discover the education and how spend better the time. The main idea is to allow each parent, mom, dad, with the autistic child, to discover themselves new abilities and new way to participate at the day life at home. It is usually difficult for us to choose, for an autistic child a time of continuous growth, for the Kiwanian members an opportunity to help each one to express the best of himself by lighting up talents in the Autism world.
