Bright Future Special School educates community on Autism

Pupils and teachers held a placard demonstration to raise awareness on Autism.

Teachers and pupils from Bright Future Special in Parlock held an Autism awareness initiative to educate parents and residents on autism.

The programme started with a placard demonstration by pupils, teachers and principal, Sipho Nkosi.

They walked to Inanda and Joyce Roads, where they distributed pamphlets to motorists and pedestrians, educating them more about autism.

The programme continued after the walk with a talk from a speech therapist who informed parents on how to relate to their children with Autism.

Deputy principal, Fikile Mbili, said it is important for parents to understand their children with autism, and in that way they will relate to them more.

“We appeal to parents to not lock their children with autism indoors due to their so-called odd behaviour. Take them out and make other people aware about autism. We also appeal to parents to join support groups to learn more on how to communicate with their children and understand them better,” said Mbili. Refreshments were served to pupils and parents who attended.
