Autism: A different ability… a blessing in disguise

On Saturday the 22nd of November, Ms Bakare spoke at the Defeat Autism In Nigeria Support Group for parents of children with autism, other developmental disorders or special educational needs.

Ms Bakare spoke on the skills and abilities found in people with autism, and how the typical characteristics we criticize should be seen as strengths. People with autism spectrum disorders have a unique perspective of the world and it is time we wake up to the advantages of creating an inclusive environment in our community.
