Autism Spectrum Disorder is neither normal nor abnormal nor autistic or non-autistic. We can say people with a neurotypical disability and this is the right term.

I want to congratulate you all. I have attended many workshops of the Manovikas family and I learned a lot. They are doing very well for everyone.

People think we are either black or white. We are actually every shade of grey.

I have observed more talent in children with disabilities. Our children with autism are not less than other non-disabled children. They have a lifelike us and are doing better with support.

Some things you want to know and understand

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurological and developmental disorder that affects how people interact with others, communicate, learn, and behave. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is described as a “developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life.

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), a guide created by the American Psychiatric Association that health care providers use to diagnose mental disorders, people with ASD often have:

  • Difficulty with communication and interaction with other people
  • Restricted interests and repetitive behaviors
  • Symptoms that affect their ability to function in school, work, and other areas of life

Autism is known as a “spectrum” disorder because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people experience.

People of all genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds can be diagnosed with ASD. Although ASD can be a lifelong disorder, treatments and services can improve a person’s symptoms and daily functioning. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all children receive screening for autism. Caregivers should talk to their child’s health care provider about ASD screening or evaluation.

Currently, the number of schools providing education to children with autism is severely limited as compared to the need. However, the range of services is extremely varied and diverse ranging from autism-specific services to mainstream schools.

RPWD Act 2016, Section 19 (a) ensures inclusion of persons with disability in all mainstream formal and non-formal vocational and skill training schemes and programmes; and 19 (c) exclusive skill training programmes for persons with disabilities with active links with the market, for those with developmental, intellectual, multiple disabilities and autism;

NEP 2020 also talks about inclusive education.
