AUTISM: Amazingly Unique, Totally Inspiring Sometimes Mysterious..

#GTBank Autism Week
 The Annual Autism Seminar organised by GTBank was held on the 8th and 9th of April at the MUSON Center, Victoria Island. It was a fantastic place to be not just for those who have kids with special needs but for e v e r y o n e. We truly cannot overemphasise the importance of having the right information, and good awareness of public health issues such as this. It was a good awareness.
 
Undoubtedly, managing children with autism is a different ball game however most parents in rural areas do not understand this, hence sometimes, they see them as irrelevant kids, or kids possesed with some demons.
 
Recently, we had a case of a 7-8year old boy who exhibits most of the traits as discussed however, his single mama has not been able to assist him so well because she lacks good information. Mama does not know anything about autism. In recent weeks, this little boy was taken to a church for 30days fasting and prayer... probably for deliverance session because of his special behaviours.  We think it's high time this little boy's moma understood what autism is all about and how to interact with her son. She needs to know that children with autism are Always Unique, Totally Amazing, Sometimes Mysterious...:)
 
Huge appreciation to GTBank for such an awesome event. It was worth attending. Weldone you!

She was only 7+years old.
She fell ill 2weeks ago.
Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…

Thank You.
