Lack of awareness is causing barriers in schools for children with autism

Every child has the right to education as per the Indian constitution.

Disabled children are supposed to get admission in normal schools and get quality education.

These are the expectations from an ideal system, however, in reality the education system in the country has many barriers.

Children with autism are not treated with equality and dignity in Indian schools. They are made fun of and called names by their fellow students.

This can be changed by making schools inclusive and making arrangements to train teachers.

Special teachers for students with autism can create a better chance of learning.

Lack of awareness about autism is the main reason that children with autism are treated badly.

Schools need to be well equipped to meet the requirements of children with special needs.
