While the figure may initially seem alarming, specialists cite better awareness among parents and preschool teachers, leading to early referrals for diagnosis.
Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the world. Despite this high prevalence, research shows that many parents of young children have very little knowledge about the signs of autism and are not seeking help early enough.
As there is currently no cure for autism, early detection and intervention can result in critical improvements across the lifespan.
Special education schools like Metta School are for children aged seven to twenty-one with mild intellectual disability and/or mild to moderate autism spectrum disorder. It provides a holistic education that encompasses life skills, vocational skills, academics and the arts to children with special needs.
In conjunction with Autism Awareness Day 2020, support special education and early intervention to children like Selena when you donate.
