New life skills centre for children with autism in Mumbai
A life-skills centre for children with autism has opened in Powai in Mumbai. Called Together Life Skills Centre, it has been started by Sangeetha and V Chakrapani, who got the idea when their two of their children wanted to know what their siblings, who have autism, would do in the future.
They decided to start a programme to help children with autism get ready for independent living.
The centre will offer training in kitchen management, self-care and care of the environment and vocational training, among others.
