Parents talk and sharing session for the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM)

Parents talk and sharing session - Fatigue and stress management for caregivers by Hiro Koo

The eighth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2016. Every year, autism organizations around the world celebrate the day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events.
This is how I spent my day:)
I am honored to have this chance to share the emotional and stress coping techniques for the parents.

Autism is a developmental disability that remains with a person for his or her whole life. This condition affects the brain's functions. The first signs usually appear before a child is three years old. People with autism often:
  • Find social interaction difficult.
  • Have problems with verbal and non-verbal communication.
  • Demonstrate restrictive and repetitive behavior.
  • Have a limited set of interests and activities.
Autism affects girls and boys of all races and in all geographic regions and has a large impact on children, their families, communities and societies. The prevalence is currently rising in many countries around the world. Caring for and educating children and young people with this condition places challenges on health care, education and training programs. 

Yes, Autism Awareness Month is a time to educate your community about autism and Light It Up Blue!

Thanks NASOM for the contribution!
You guys are the best!
