Noting that utmost care needs to be taken in treatment of children suffering from autism, Union minister Thaawarchand Gehlot on Thursday said the government would extend all required assistance to the National Trust in this regard.

“It is very difficult to distinguish a child suffering from autism (from a normal child) and that is why utmost care needs to be taken in their treatment. These children need love and affection from all persons and should not be treated differently,” the Social Justice and Empowerment Minister said at a workshop here.

The training workshop on autism was organised by the National Trust, under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, in collaboration with Child Neurology Division, Department of Pediatrics and AIIMS.

The National Trust has taken an initiative to identify all such children and to train master trainers for their treatment, the minister said, adding that the government will give full support to the trust.
