making information accessible,

taking timely steps to spot, screen, systematically diagnose and treat these disorders at an early stage,

designing effective pedagogical structures within both the ordinary and the specialist educational environment for young children, adolescents and young adults,

adapting structures for integrating young people with these disabilities into the world of work,
