SPARTA is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization founded by Dr. Michael Lafasakis which aims to conduct research and provide empirically supported treatments in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in the school and at homes with their parents and family members.
Autism prevalence is an issue that requires further study throughout the world, however it is believed to be growing in rural areas and cities an an alarming rate. SPARTA and other dedicated research organizations have been studying autism for years. We believe SPARTA's initiative can help children with severe Autism in these unserved locations.
Although autism has been an epidemic in America, Greece is proud of a culture that is based on tolerance and acceptance, autism has emerged as a social issue only during the last few years thanks to the efforts of a handful of scientists and parents. This has been due in part to lack of state funding for research and proper supportive structures within the educational and health system, delayed diagnosis, lack of training programs for teachers and parents, lack of a unified and structured awareness campaign, and a reluctance of several parents to accept the condition of their children and step forward. Experience has shown that local communities can be accepting and supportive as long as they have proper “coaching.” This is where efforts like ours come in.As our mission states, SPARTA’s programs involve a multi-dimensional approach of treatment, education, and research.
