As per statistics, one in every 150 persons has an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), out of which 80% are males. Statistics also show that more than 4 millions people with autism, spread all over in India irrespective of background, religion, caste or class. If we consider the statistics with respect to Jaipur; 25 to 40 newborns per month are to be diagnosed with autism; i.e. in an year 300 to 450 children. While the disorder is not rare, the majority of autistic people in India have not been diagnosed and do not receive the services they need. This problem occurs in many countries, but is especially true in India where there is a tremendous lack of awareness and misunderstanding about autism among the medical professionals, who may either misdiagnose or under diagnose the condition.
Autism is a lifelong neuro-biological disorder but with early intervention & system approach it can be controlled to enable the child functional and lead a fruitful life by his adulthood.
With this intention in mind, we Parents group of autistic children have started our unique journey under an umbrella “ Approach Autism” at Jaipur to benefit people of Rajasthan and adjoining states by rendering services.
