The end of June saw the completion of another school year in Tajikistan. This year 11 children with autism have also begun a well-deserved summer break after attending school alongside their peers for the very first time. Beginning summer holidays is exciting for any student, but for this group of children the completion of a school year is particularly momentous as it marks the overcoming of many challenges in order to participate at school.
Since commencing its work IRODA has advocated for children with autism to have access to the education system in Tajikistan. Previously a child with autism would be automatically denied the opportunity to enroll at school. However with increases in both knowledge and resources three mainstream schools have started to partner with IRODA and support children with autism to attend school.
Your support of IRODA’s pioneering work in Tajikistan is creating wonderful new opportunities for learning for children with autism. Through your ongoing partnership we look forward to seeing many more children experience the feeling of achievement that comes with the completion of a school year.
