WORLD AUTISM DAY: APRIL 2, 2018: VICKIE ROBERT FOUNDATION NIGERIA, EDUCATES PUPILS OF ROSAFIELD PEACE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL IBADAN,OYO STATE ON ‘AUTISM’

This year, Vickie Robert Foundation Nigeria, Clinical Nurse Manager, Joseph Chukwuma (RN, RPN) helped pupils at ROSAFIELD PEACE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL IBADAN, OYO STATE, TO UNDERSTAND ‘AUTISM’


Despite the growing number of children with autism educated in mainstream classrooms, alot of pupils are not familiar with autism, despite some recognition of the disability, they had little knowledge of its characteristics, such as communication and social skill challenges.

If students are uninformed about a disability, they often attribute undesirable social behaviors to individual choice. For example, a classmate may interpret avoidance of eye contact as rude instead of as a behavioral characteristic of autism.

Helping children and young people to understand autism can be the key to peer acceptance. This can lead to a reduction in bullying.
