It may be due to the greater awareness or the expanded definition of Autism – the cases of autism and other similar developmental disorders have increased so much in recent years that demand does not seem to be keeping up. While this seems to be a worrying issue, our founders believe that “disorders” like autism are a form of neuro-diversity. When given the right environment and intervention, conditions can be greatly improved. In fact, traits associated with autism have great advantages. To mention a few famous people on the spectrum – Temple Grandin, Tim Burton, and Bill Gates. Their special abilities to be precise with details – persistent with pursuing their interests and sharp with their senses – have contributed tremendously to their successes.
The key for a child with autism to reach his fullest potential is having access to the most effective intervention early. One of such methods is Applied Behavioral Analysis – Verbal Behavior (ABA/VB). Unfortunately, it is not commonly practised yet. This is why Healis was founded – to reach out to all children with autism and provide the therapy that is proven to work. At Healis, we are dedicated to help every child to not just learn speech and communication but also shape character and discover their own passions. This is simply because every child deserves good health, education and happiness.
