Our questions

We want to answer following questions:

1.) What are the diagnostic criteria for autism in your country?
2.) What is the most common autism theory with you?
3.) Are there alternative autism theories in your country? Which?
4.) What is the most common therapy approach for autistic children?
5.) Are there alternative therapies? Which?
6.) Defining culture as an interplay of tradition and innovation, has your country a more traditional (e.g. importance of authority and hierarchy) or innovative structure?
7.) What are the severity levels of a developmental disorder diagnosed as autism?
8.) What are the philosophical and psychological foundations? In Russia e.g. one is the Vygotsky-developed „cultural-historical-concept“ [Vygotsky, L.S: Fundamentals of Defectology].
