“The aim of our exhibition is to inform the public about the problem of autism and to show that, despite their differences, people with autism spectrum disorders are fundamentally the same as the rest of us. Our exhibition documents the intertwining of two worlds – our world and the world of children- autistic children,” says Karel Zerzáň, director of Primary Schools and Kindergartens at Uherské Hradišt with special educational needs.

Even at home, we were dressed in blue that day and we made pictures with him in blue,” said the boy’s parents who did not want to be named.
