Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder. As autism is still being discovered, the numbers of autistics are increasing as per day. The occurrence of autism is 1 in 58 in the U.S. In Pakistan, there is no data collection and there is zero to none awareness about autism. A stigma attached to this community, perceived as mentally retarded. Even the psychiatrists confuse them with schizophrenia. A lot of misconceptions, lack of acceptance. It makes the life of an autistic individual more stressful when not understood and accepted. My project aims to change perceptions about the autistic community by creating awareness across Pakistan as well as breaking the stigma.
