AutTalk provides direct financial support to caring families, organizes lectures and regular meetings for them, runs an information and discussion forum, and supports organizations around autism and their networking throughout the Czech Republic. Kateřina has also been running supportive parent groups for the past three years. One of the major activities of the foundation is educating about autism.
