The Gaivota [Seagull] project

The Gaivota [Seagull] project

“I’m flying! Zorba! I can fly!” She squawked ecstatically from the vastness of the grey skies.
The human stroked the cat’s back.
“Well, cat, we did it,” he said, sighing.Yes. At the edge of the void, she understood the most important thing of all," Zorba said.
“Oh, yes? And what was that?”
The human asked.
“That only those who dare may fly.”

Luís Sepúlveda – “The Story of a Seagull and the Cat Who Taught Her to Fly”

Sometimes we feel like cats trying to teach seagulls how to fly.

 

The primary purpose of the ‘Gaivota' project is to support all those who want to know more about AS or have contact with people with AS. This project strives to enhance the performance/achievement in the exercise of their profession. Thus, facilitating the school success of our children, through the establishment of firm links of proximity, dialogue, transmission of knowledge/experiences and cooperation between all participants in the school-educative process of people with AS.

‘Gaivota' is a lectureaddressed to teachers, auxiliaries and students of schools in mainland Portugal and islands.

‘Gaivota' is a 12-year-old activity that has been streamlined by parents who share their experiences with educators, technicians and students to sensitise the school community to the inclusion of people with Asperger's Syndrome. During the year 2015, we reached the 5,000 people who, in mainland Portugal and islands, attended these lectures to know more.
