Autism

Is each one of us the same? No, right! It's completely fine to be different. It's important to appreciate difference! It's important to understand and appreciate Autism, the hue and cry is not at all helpful. It's important to accept that the child is developing a little differently and has different needs, it won't be difficult to bridge the gap with the right intent and knowhow. Only a therapy isn't enough, the whole family's participation is important for the child's development. You might have come across a child with Autism in your neighbourhood, or a child who gets distressed at a mall, and, you may have heard about Autism Spectrum Disorder. This interest is focused on creating awareness and intervention, and to find answers to -what can one do to take a step forward and celebrate the different.
