26th Meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability

July 3, 2014  Copy to Calendar

26th Meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability

Location: Vienna, Austria
The logo of the annual meeting 2014 is a part of a drawing of a Viennese artist who lives in a facility for autistic people. The logo is mostly conceived enjoyable. Although it seems that every horse has the same shape and looks in the same direction. However, in the original picture with its 91 horses, there are not two of them looking alike. From a clinical point of view we tend to prioritize the signs of pathology as we are trained to search for them. However, looking at 'the other side' of the picture is to observe it from an artistic point of view - one might be impressed by the differences within the similarities. Therefore the theme of the meeting shall remind us that each thing, every action, every kind of observable behaviour can also be seen from another perspective - it has an 'other side'.
