To promote the concept of inclusive and inclusive education and to facilitate the easy integration of people with autism and special needs into their community;
In order to make the community aware that it accepts people with autism as full people and not as entirely separate people;
ETIC uses the GAME as a method of integration and education. Thus, each ETIC tool has a LUDO aspect.
These tools are deployed in educational fairs and animations organized by ETIC or by other organizations in order to allow all to educate themselves in the game, the sharing, the mutual aid and the love of the other.
1-CHRISTMAS IN FAMILY
The association ETIC realized from December 21 to December 28, 2014 the first fair of the educational games at the stadium of the catholic parish our Lady annunciation of Bonamoussadi in Douala, economic city of Cameroon.

WHAT HAVE THEY LEARNED IN EXITING THE PROJECT?
The graph below shows the evolution of children in a workshop, the pace being the same for the majority of the workshops. On the y-axis we have the percentage of children who have had the highest grade, and on the x-axis we have the different weeks.
We can see a growth of the percentage of the mention very well in series 1 and 3, which are the series where there has not been too much renewal of the population. On the other hand, in series 2 and 4, we noted a lot of movement (renewal and irregularity) during the third and fourth week, which explains the appearance of the curves.
This project allowed to popularize this new approach, which was not at all known by the surrounding populations: the Ludo-educational method.
The various workshops on the program
A closing ceremony sanctioned the end of the project. During the ceremony, to show their gratitude to ETIC, to the PWC foundation that supported the project, and especially to their parents, the children performed songs for the great pleasure of the latter; after which the parchments were distributed to the most diligent children.
