Leena George | Sulekha Sakeer

Abstract: Education is the key to awareness. Keeping in mind the importance of early identification, the researcher identified a sample ( n=200) in Ernakulam, Kerala State, that are unaware about Autism Spectrum Disorder ( ASD). The methodology included preparation of pictorial slides for the learning package, a self designed questionnaire, to assess the awareness level about autism, before and after the educational programme. A booklet and pamphlet about ASD was also prepared. The results were subjected to percentage analysis.
