When a family has a child with special needs, it reflects on the whole family. The child can go to a special school or can be receiving extra care or guidance, but most of the time some extra help in the family is very welcome. Parents always want what is best for their child, but often lack the specific knowledge that is required to guide the child through life. Children with special needs benefit from clarity and structure at home. It is beneficial for parents, the child and the rest of the family when they understand each other. Family guidance targets the whole family. We offer knowledge transfer of the specifics of the condition of the child. We also offer practical day-to-day skills for coping to what life throws at you. Next to this, we can help to structure the family agenda and be an adviser for the daily questions you run into. Guidance is custom-made based on the specific situation of the family and the child.

There are hardly any reimbursements or subsidies for autism counseling in Curaçao. However, there are children who could benefit from guidance whose families do not have the financial means to purchase this care. Huntu also wants to support the people who need help but cannot afford this themselves financially. Huntu therefore offers residents who have little or nothing to spend to purchase individual guidance, family guidance or group guidance for their child. This care is provided by professional care providers. To be eligible for this form of financing, the parents can contact huntu. There is only limited space for this form of financing and huntu wants to use it in the best ways possible. That is why the client must be able to prove that they are unable to afford our services.

What is autism?
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that has most often been present and noticed by parents in early childhood.
The basic problems for autism are persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction in various situations (domain A). This includes the following three characteristics. Deficits in social-emotional reciprocity (1). Deficits in nonverbal communicative behaviors used for social interaction (2). In addition, deficits in developing, maintaining and understanding relationships (3).
In addition to persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction, there must be restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities (domain B). This includes the following four characteristics. Stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, use of objects, or speech (1). Insistence on sameness, inflexible adherence to routines, or ritualized patterns of verbal or nonverbal behavior (2). Highly restricted, fixated interests that are abnormal in intensity or focus (3). Hyper- or hyporeactivity to sensory input or unusual interest in sensory aspects of the environment (4).
The diagnosis is made when a child meets all the characteristics mentioned in domain A and 2 of the 4 characteristics in domain B. In addition, the symptoms must be present in early childhood (domain C) and the symptoms lead to limitations and impairments in daily functioning (domain D).
Autism is a congenital disorder and in many cases is a hereditary condition. It can also develop due to genetic predisposition, depending on environmental factors. Autism is thus a congenital disorder and cannot be cured. You can learn to deal with it through guidance, treatment, training and/or information.
