Autism Awareness in Pakistan

There was a time when people in Pakistan know nothing about how to talk to children with autism. Today, with the help of Pakistani media and health societies, autism is something worth creating awareness. Symptoms of autism vary widely in kids, for example, inability to converse, sudden mood tantrums, avoiding eye contact, etc. All these symptoms can be effectively dealt if you have some knowledge about this disorder.

April is National Autism Awareness Month in the world. On this day, the need of educating and supporting families with autism children is emphasized. People should understand that there are certain procedures of living normal lives with affected kids too. People need to be autism-sensitive first. If you have somebody with all such unusual symptoms, before judging them or creating trouble for them, give it a thought that they might be autism affected. Kids with autism have an equal place in the community. Instead of making them aloof from the normal community, they should be helped in dealing with the circumstances of life.

In Pakistan, there are thousands of kids born with autism. Parents of such kids need to show strength and bravery in accepting their child’s disorder to make them face the world. There should be more than just programs on autism awareness. People should discuss this issue at family gatherings and with friends. One should always remember that kids with autism are God gifted. They need their part of love and care to become a part of this society by fighting their natural brain conditions.
