THE world is in need of people who think differently says Member of Parliament for Chaguanas West Dinesh Rambally.

Rambally, during the Opposition’s press briefing on Sunday, spoke on the occasion of World Autism Awareness Day usually commemorated on April 2.

He said, “Let’s not put people in small boxes, rather it’s time to break the box.  The world needs people who think differently. In a world where everyone thinks the same, nothing would ever change. Through inclusiveness and support, let’s make this world a better place for every human being.”

Rambally said that the day was to increase awareness, encourage worldwide support, promote acceptance of autism and inspire individuals.

According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated about one in 100 children has autism worldwide.
This year’s theme is Transformation- Towards a Neuro-Inclusive World for All.

Rambally said, “Autism is a spectrum, which means that each child with autism will see, hear and experience the world differently from those without it.”

Autism generally affect behaviour in social relationships and interactions, language processing and communication, activities and interests and processing sensory information, he said.

Rambally said, “A common misconception about autism is that it is inextricably linked to intellectual disability. However, many of the world’s great thinkers and innovators displayed characteristics of autism.”
