Vocational training

After the 10th or plus two, many parent stand bewildered in front of the question "What next?" In fact if parents have trained children properly, by the time schooling is complete they would have a concrete answer to this. Even if the hidden strengths of the children are discovered, we need to nurture them properly so that they gain their living through it. Autism club conducts several such programs where these talents are found out and nourished. Skilled children are given 2 months training before job, which included training in soft skills too.

We are giving computer training in various levels based on the child's ability. Certificates are given after completing the course. 
Computer/tablet based education is relevant because of the following reasons:- 

1. It is found that majority of autism kids are very much interested in electronic devices like tablets and computers. They understand and learn the functionalities of such devices much easily.

2. Lots of visual and auditory stimulations are present in computer applications. The main difficulty mentors find in children with autism is to catch their attention and maintain their concentration throughout a task. This can be lessened to a great extent through tablet education.

3. It is observed that children love to hear and repeat the sound from a device, best example is the ever favourite "Talking Tom" application. Thus such applications help a lot in triggering the speech in children with little speech.

4. Many of the non-verbal kids and kids with little speech communicate through pictures or typing. Thus introduction of AAC applications have been a turning point in life of many such children and their family. They could express their needs and thoughts to the world through typing. Many have typed poems and stories which later got published as books.

5. Children with autism are self learners. The computer and internet are the gateway to whole world of knowledge. Our children can use them by own and satisfy their thirst in their fields of interest.

6. Most of the semi-skilled or skilled jobs require basic knowledge on computer. In our day to day life we depend on computers to a large extent.

7. Children with autism fail to excel in jobs where they need to communicate with the people. But, in computer related jobs, these people need not interact with anybody else. They sit calmly in front of a computer delivering high quality output.
