Caring for ASD children

In Bangladesh, a large number of people are suffering from autism spectrum disorders (ASD), especially children, who need regular supervision. But due to lockdown, the institutions that look after such children are closed and their services have been postponed. During the ongoing pandemic, those with ASD are at high risk as they can't express themselves the way they are used to. The lack of specialised care further hampers their well-being. Although some organisations have started online services, many don't have access to proper internet connection and computers. Therefore, parents are the only hope for children with ASD. Creating awareness and demonstrating proper caring techniques via mass media can go a long way to cope with this situation. Specialised programmes for autistic children can also be conducted via television.
