CONCERNS

In the state of Kerala, the number of autism affected is increasing by leaps and bounds, but a clear picture is unavailable. The reason being lack of constructive and evidence based studies. Main areas of concern:

  • Lack of early intervention
  • General unawareness
  • Limitations of Autism institutions and movements
  • Alienation of affected parents
  • Lack of trained teachers
  • Absence of a strong network
