SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 24 (Bernama) — Malaysia will have a RM30 million autism centre named Permata Kurnia in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur by 2015, said the Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
In 1985, the ratio of children with autism in Malaysia was one in 10,000 but the rising figure has become a cause for concern, while in countries like South Korea one child in 30 is autistic, she told reporters after a visit to the Anova Center for Education in San Rafael, here.
Rosmah was welcomed by the centre’s founder, Andrew Bailey. Also present was Congressman Jared Huffman.
The Anova Center for Education was opened in 2008 and has 170 autistic students in three schools located in Concorde, Santa Rosa and San Rafael.
During the visit Rosmah shared her views on special education for students with autism.
The centre also provides effective treatments involving speech and movement therapies.
