First Lady Esther Lungu paid tribute to parents and guardians that are taking care of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex lifelong neuro-developmental disorder that is characterised by a child’s deficit in reciprocal social interaction, communication, and restricted interests.

The First Lady flagged off of the Mulenga Autism Foundation awareness march past under the them under the theme “Understand, Accept, and Love.The First Lady said the theme has come at the time when many parents and the general public need to understand what autism is all about.She said without understanding what autism is, will definitely result in failure to manage the condition.

The First Lady has since called for the need for Zambia to be knowledgeable about autism prevalence because this will ensure that the nation plans for the provision of adequate services to persons with autism.Speaking earlier Mulenga Autism Representative Joseph Kabali said the event is meant to help answer questions by parents on autism.
Mr. Kabali said with early intervention a person with autism can grow up to contribute to the development of the country.

The event is one of the first of its kind in Zambia that showcases how citizens can get involved in the autism community.
