The two-day International Seminar on Autism 2014 being held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) was officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak yesterday.
Themed “Autism Is Not A Tragedy, Ignorance Is”, the seminar emphasised the importance of providing high quality intervention programmes to autistic children.
The inaugural seminar is aimed at enhancing community awareness and sharing of views in the education of autistic children nationwide.
It is organised by the Program Permata in collaboration with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and non-governmental organisation Autism Speaks.
The seminar is a platform to implement autistic children programmes known as Permata Kurnia Programme, which was expected to begin in May next year. — Bernama
