It is estimated that the total no of population with autism could be as high as 1.4 million in Bangladesh of whom only a few hundred have been diagnosed. General attitude towards autism is mostly negative. All parents want their autistic children’s education and care. But there are around 20 schools only which are significantly inadequate to provide support to these huge number of children. Our aim is to fill this gap with a vision of improving the standard and quality of autism-related interventions in Bangladesh focusing on ADL activities.
Golden Kids has been conceived with the vision of improving the level and quality of autism-related interventions in Bangladesh by assimilating standard practices. Every child with autism is different. So, Golden Kids work with individual child.
These are achieved by creating a group of trained teachers,where teachers can work in the school environment and can have ongoing professional development.
Golden Kids aims to create long-term intervention strategies in a child’s life from the early years into adulthood so as to understand each child’s strengths and capabilities. The program is a continuous process between teachers, parents, and care-givers so that skills can be rapidly learnt and applied in real life.
Golden Kids is trying to standardize model of teaching and intervention for autism, which over time can be replicated across schools and communities in Bangladesh.
