The mayor, Mª Ángeles Túnez, explained that "we are going to create spaces and understandable environments that encourage participation and autonomy, regardless of the characteristics or personal conditions, facilitating social inclusion and cognitive and sensory accessibility."

It should be noted that the mayor of Puerto Lumbreras has already met with representatives of the association for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder of the Region of Murcia (Asteamur) in order to strengthen collaboration with the association.

During the work meeting, the Mayor undertook to manage the procedures for the transfer of a location to the Asteamur association.

Thus, personnel of the association will move to Puerto Lumbreras to provide service to Lumbrerenses children with ASD.

The workplace will be located in the facilities of the Juan López Children's School.

This association intervenes with children and adolescents who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, attending to their families and intervening therapeutically to improve their quality of life.

The professionals that make up the association advise the families in those interventions according to the diagnosis and the needs of the child in a personalized treatment package.

This service aims to be the beginning of a psychotherapeutic process, establishing a line of multidisciplinary coordination that marks the priorities that both the child and his family and professionals consider necessary.


Technicians in Early Childhood Education of the Municipal Nursery Network of Puerto Lumbreras have received training to perform an early diagnosis of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder from 0 to 3 years, at the same time they have also acquired knowledge for the resolution and application of treatments before the different situations that arise in the classroom.

In this case, the training has been taught by technicians from the Astrade association.
