Regular schooling may create mental health problems in autistic kids
A new study says that children with autism are at higher risk of developing low self-confidence and mental health issues if they go to regular schools.
Researchers from the United Kingdom have found that autistic kids build their self image based on how other people treat and communicate with them.
When they face negative attitudes and reactions from others, it makes them feel different and limited in ability.
How can mainstream schools better include special needs kids
Inclusive mainstream education or regular schools are not bad, but they are suitable for autistic kids only if there are small changes made. This includes creating silent places to socialise, listening to the needs of the autistic kids, and making them feel more positive about themselves.
