The therapists presented various methods to model autistic behavior which could be in cultivated in day to day life with the help of which the child could become independent in the long-run. After which, it was the turn of the parents who put forth their experiences of being a parent to an autistic child. The experiences, right from getting to know the child’s condition, the early diagnosis and helping them manage their routine activities and teaching them to deal with the society seemed to be truly awe-inspiring. A Question & Answer session was then been conducted which helped the parents learn the solution to their queries by interacting with the doctors.
