Laszlo is spreading the idea that people with significant autism and other mental handicaps can manage and excel in employment. He has created a replicable rural approach of individual living - a multi-stage rehabilitation model - that prepares intellectually disabled people for independent lives through employment, residence, and leisure time. A further way that Laszlo’s approach differs from traditional services is by providing services and activities that cut across numerous disabilities – from physical to intellectual, to moderate to severe – and that even incorporate non-disabled individuals. For example, a blind person will work with a severely autistic person on training guide-dogs. Elements of Laszlo’s model have already been picked up by other disability organizations and he is strongly influencing national policy in Hungary. His approach is also spreading to Poland, Romania and Moldavia.
