The V.I.M.A.S.© it is original, innovative and unique. V.I.M.A.S.© is based on the observation that neuropsychiatric disorders in the developmental age have a multifaceted appearance, often associated with parental or family problems. They are a pervasive developmental disorder in the sense that large and diverse areas of functioning of the subject's life (home, school, community) are affected in a harmful way. V.I.M.A.S.©aims to accurately assess the functioning of an individual in these dimensions of life by implementing a complete series of interventions to address in an integrated way, the broad spectrum of domains involved in the dysfunction of the single individual.
