Pakistan: Public Awareness of Autism
A very well written piece on Autism. Here in Pakistan, the term
'autism' is not much heard of by the general population, there is no data
on the prevalence of Autism in Pakistan. So most cases fall pray to
shamans and religous healers. There is a strong need to educate the
general public of this disorder and update the medical curricula too.
