Autism is a subject rarely spoken of in Sri Lanka, even though state data shows that one per cent of the children born annually are vulnerable for Autism Spectrum Disorder. This number translate into approximately 3, 750.

It is amidst this that the World Autism Awareness Day fell on April 02, where the subject emerged for a brief period as the Ministry of Education initiated several programs to raise awareness among the public.

The government will take steps to establish health clinics, centers to train autistic children in all districts.

As part of this occasion, Knight of Illusions together with Learning Bridge and HasH33 compiled 10 indicators one could observe in a child with Autism.

Developmental Psychologist Ms. Nicola Felthman explains about what one needs to know about Autism.
