Szivárvány Non-Profit Autism Organization

The Szivárvány Non-Profit Autism Organization was established in 2003 in Szeged, Hungary, with the purpose of representing the interests of autistic people, offering various services to them, as well as constructively cooperating with the systems allowing for them to improve the quality of their lives. In the recent years, the services provided by our organization have been used by people with other kinds of disabilities, too.

Our main objective is to reduce the discrimination of people with disabilities, and to help them to participate in society equally to other people.
