Kerala to get 140 autism parks in the next three years
The government of Kerala will build autism parks for the disabled children in all the 140 assembly constituencies in the state in the next three years.
The announcement was made by the state education minister, Prof C Raveendranath recently.
The idea of such parks is to provide professional training to autistic kids.
At present, there are 36 autism centres in the state and the state government plans to appoint more professionals for mental and physical health care of autistic children in all existing and new centres across the state.
Also, there are plans to introduce talent clubs in each school in the state to help bring out the hidden skills and abilities of autistic kids and give them a chance to showcase the talents in their areas of interest.
