Dipolog joins national autism consciousness week celebration

Dipolog City (22 January) -- In support of the observance of national autism consciousness week, the city government here led by Mayor Evelyn T. Uy has lined up a number of activities to drum up public awareness on this neural development disorder.

The weeklong celebration was opened with a motorcade around the city which was attended by the city officials, non-government organizations, staff of the city social welfare office and teachers handling children with special needs.

Other activities conducted were a lecture-forum on autism, free consultation/assessment of autistic children and a tour of children with special needs to parks and shopping malls.

Zamboanga del Norte second district congressman Rosendo S. Labadlabad, on the other hand, has donated a service vehicle, computer unit, air-conditioning unit and sound system to the Center for Children with Special Needs (CCSN) situated at the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) compound in this city.

To highlight the autism week celebration, a family day will be held tomorrow with the special kids.

City Social Welfare and Development Officer Nelson Ladera disclosed that his office had recorded 15 cases of autistic children.

Autism is a neural development disorder that impairs the child’s social interaction and communication. It causes kids to experience the world differently from the way most other kids do. Children with autism often cannot make connections and have trouble linking words to their meanings.

This year's autism week runs from Nov. 17-24. (PIA-ZN) [top]
