Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot on Saturday said that the reservation for persons with disability (PwD) in employment has been increased from 3 to 4%, with 1% reservation set aside for autistic candidates. He was speaking at the 25th anniversary meeting of the Karnataka Parents Association for Mentally Retarded Citizens. There are 21 recognised disabilities in all and they have been divided into four categories, with each category getting 1% reservation, Gehlot explained. One category has been created for candidates with Autism, Thallasemia, Cerebral Palsy, mental illnesses.

Eleven-year-old Ankit is diagnosed with autism and showed self-injurious and agitated disruptive behaviour. After six music interventions of listening to fast-paced classical music, he showed a decrease in baseline anxiety-related behaviour patterns. After two years, he now eagerly looks forward to music therapy sessions. Music therapy is a process wherein music is used to resolve behavioural issues. Whether the patient needs help socially, cognitively, physically, emotionally, or developmentally, music can help achieve the required goal. It has been proved that the foetus responds to sound from the 24-26th week of pregnancy. While sounds are greatly altered as they pass from the outside world to the ear of the foetus, there is more than sufficient stimulation to be heard in the womb. Specific sounds heard by the foetus in the womb provide a strong foundation for later learning and behaviour. The cognitive neuroscience of music shows that when making music, the sensory cortex, auditory cortex, ...

An ambitious philanthropic effort in two branches of Delhi Public School has galvanized their teachers and students into raising money through crowdsourcing platforms and supporting charities of their choice. Up at DPS-North, 250 teachers have set off a crowdsourcing campaign on online platform Fuel A Dream to raise Rs 25 lakh and support life skills for autistic individuals.

In the first phase, the funds would support education of autistic students in the 14-16 age group at Bubbles Centre for Autism, while in the second phase the school would fund livelihood skills like computer training, blockprinting and baking in which persons with autism are trained at the NGO Pragati. In DPS-South, meanwhile, 150 students have begun raising funds to pay for treatment of people with Thalassemia, a genetic disorder that causes anemia. The campaign began on ...
