Autism is complex brain condition that affects children below three years. Parents need guidance to understand the diagnosis, the next steps and how to manage them at home. Our parent training program aims at providing the best help that is possible - to first come to terms with their child's condition; and how to make life easier for the child and themselves at home. This year, we plan to train 60 parents from middle and low income group to ensure the children receive the best training.

Children with autism have little or no communication at all. They have difficulty perceiving sensory information and this leads to behavior challenges. These children need intense, consistent and long term training to develop skills. Parents with the right information can successfully manage their children at home and develop them to their full potential. Most families have a single earning member where one parent cares for the child. It is next to impossible for parents to afford training.


The project will be conducted every week for 10 months by experts in medicine, special education and psychology. They will conduct training on autism, its management and related topics. The training will be culture, language specific and free of charge. The resource material for training will be prepared in house. The training will include reading material that will be given to the parents as a reference guide. A parent support network will be created to help parents de-stress and find help.

Long-Term Impact

Training and empowering parents is vital to improve the lives of autistics. The project will reach out to 60 parents and will equip them to handle behavior and sensory issues common in individuals with autism. Parents will be able to teach living skills, plan a vocation and thereby making the child independent and act as secondary tutors at home. They will have a better understanding of the therapies the child attends and track progress. A parent helped is a child helped, a family helped!
