  • Late Diagnosis

    In 75% of the cases – Diagnosis of autism happens only after the child is 2 years of age.

  • Not enough experts

    Access to expert care for autism is expensive, and just not enough.

  • Parents want training

    Parents are highly motivated, spend most time with the child but lack training to improve their caregiving skills.

  • No easy way

    There is no easy way for parents to connect with other parents, or find experts and caregivers close to them.

Our focus in on Parents

The life of a Parent with a child who has autism is an extraordinary one. Even simple day to day activities that we take for granted becomes extraordinarily difficult for them. Parents understand what other parents are going through and are always supporting each other.

Every parent in autsi is creating more caregivers by helping them (parents) and connecting. Common problems faced by the children with autism are difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests, and repetitive behaviours. These problems can be dealt by anyone experienced in taking care of such children. We also bring content from expert NGOs, Schools so parents can easily access and learn from them!
