Hello,I am a special needs teacher at Kisima, a centre that specializes in teaching children with special needs. At the centre, I have been instrumental in creating awareness about the rights, skills and talents of special needs children.— Esther Wells
Let’s talk about autism!
It is something that most parents are living with in their homes but shy away from talking about. They would rather talk of other things like how their children are developing holistically, how they beat others in the soccer game, how they did well in the SATs.
But autism is here with others.
And it manifests itself in different ways from nonverbal to poor social interaction, kids doing one task repeatedly and not having empathy. There are also those who have sensory overload and will therefore avoid going to concerts, parties or rowdy places unless they have headphones for autism.
In our blog we also talk about how to differentiate between late talking vs autism because they are two very different things. Sometimes, a doctor might label your kid as autistic while in fact, they have the einstein syndrome.
We also talk of things that might be delaying your kid from expressing themselves verbally all the way from overdependence on tech as well as simple language delay.
Other than autism, we also look at cerebral palsy and we are trying to explore how to better their quality of life as well as give their parents a piece of mind.
