The ASI’s secretary Ruby Singh, who is also the mother of an 18-year-old autistic boy told reporters, “Autism is a spectrum disorder; while one child can do very well, another one can be just the other way around. The chief minister has made some promises, but those have to be delivered.”
Autistic children need special care and it is difficult for Parents to provide all facilities to their autism children especially education because of lack of schools, infrastructure and coping mechanisms in the city.
Therefore, through this event they demand the state government to take sufficient steps to create awareness on autism.
This brain disorder is also hit record in America, though there has well procedure to diagnose it with much awareness of parents. But in India, it is insufficient.
