Dani Rovira’s foundation fights autism through sport

Improving society through sport. It’s the idea of Ochotumbao Foundation, who organizes a conference this first weekend of April in order to help children with autism. All this, through the Astrade Association.

Astrade It is an association that has its main office in Molina de Segura, but they have different offices in other parts of the Region of Murcia. It was born from the union of about 500 families who have in their bosom a member with Generalized developmental problem. In addition, Astrade considers that the most important goal of the association is to promote the well-being and quality of life of these people and their families during the different stages of their lives. The Fundación Ochotumbao organizes these solidarity sports days to join the cause, with the aim of raising what is necessary to achieve Astrade’s objective.

This fundraising will go entirely to the purchase of the BBmiradas robot, pioneering initiative in Spain, whose objective is the early detection and intervention of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Babies with warning indicators in the socio-communicative development that is based, among other data and observations, in the analysis of visual monitoring of babies.

The importance of early diagnosis is the key so that a specific and specialized early care intervention can be initiated as soon as possible, essential to promote the development and optimize the quality of life of the minor with ASD and his family.
