Event description

Description

In partnership with The Autism Awareness Place , we shall be conducting our last community development project for the year on Autism Spectrum Disorder #asd
The majority of the public do not understand this disability as the child looks physically okay while there are certain difference in functionality of the brain of the child . Therefore, we seek to raise awareness, educate and enlighten the public on the intricacies of Autism to over 1000 rural dwellers in the Oworonshoki community as well as help eradicate stigmatization and marginalization of children with ASD.

Although there is a certain level of awareness in urban areas in Lagos, Oworonshoki being a rural community still holds the myth that children living with disabilities are punishment from gods, and they should be killed or isolated from the society, we therefore want to change this perception and orientation with this awareness walk because we know that awareness brings acceptance.

Our aim and objectives for this project is to reach out to parents and guardians whose children have ASD and help provide support for them and their children through our “parents/caregivers support system”. That is why we are empowering the parents, teachers and children living with autism spectrum with skills relevant to maximise their productivity in the society. .

Join us 1st December (World AIDS Day) for an awareness walk at Oworoshoki community and on the 8th of December for the conference where we shall be giving experiential training to the caregivers, teachers and parents!
