In order to improve the communication skills of the students of our school, we cooperated with the Association for Autism. As health care for people with autism is based on a holistic approach to meeting basic human needs, special attention should be paid to communication. Despite the difficulties that people with autism have, there is a need to use language to communicate, their speech, if present, is reduced to the concrete, corresponding to the current situation. Although a person with autism wants to establish communication with the environment, health professionals often do not recognize this intention, which can have negative consequences for mutual cooperation. Therefore, in our school, we started preparing students to recognize the needs of people with autism, especially when they arrive at a health care facility. In agreement with the President of the Association, Mrs. Ana Šare, the school was presented with a poster "I AM A PERSON WITH AUTISM YOUR NEXT PATIENT". The poster was presented to the teachers Anita Raljević Špralja and Sonja Šare by Mrs. Ana Barešić in front of the Association for Autism
