Autism

Just last month, popular children TV show Sesame Street introduced its first autistic character, Julia. She flaps her arms, is less verbal and at times, doesn't respond or make eye contact when spoken to. Parents of children with this neurological disorder have lauded the move because it's a conversation that is usually never had or receives little attention. But one organisation is trying to help families living with autism. IDEAS, the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs has an Autism Centre and this World Autism Awareness month, we speak to its principal Puan Sharifah and IDEAS COO Tricia Yeoh.
