Outcome of the workshop:

Advocacy is the core component for the advancement of people with disabilities. With greater public awareness on autism, it can help not just individuals with autism, but also make lives easier for families and caregivers. In addition, we also enriched our society by accepting the wonderful differences that we all have and spread greater awareness for these amazing individuals and little battlers, and hopefully influencing others to make such a positive change too. Early intervention can improve children’s holistic development, decrease challenging behaviors, assist them in gaining essential social and communication skills, thus leading to positive outcomes later in life. When public awareness is strong, individuals will be more well-informed on symptoms, earliest age of diagnosis, interventions or therapies that will be useful. So, areas for targeted education were identified to help improve the quality of life of autistic children and their families.
