The Director of Neurology and Development Clinic at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Prof Ebenezer Badoe, is encouraging people particularly in remote areas to dispel the notion that autism has a link with superstition.
Professor Badoe was speaking at the first session of the 4th Annual Autism Workshop organized yesterday.
The workshop is an initiative of the Child Health Improvement Program (CHIP) International, a US based non-profit organization which focuses on awareness, identification and training regarding autism and special needs children.
This year’s workshop which is a three day program is under the theme “Biomedical and nutrition intervention for autism“. It is a platform to educate people to think differently about the conditions of childhood developmental disorders.
