The incidence and prevalence of neuro developmental disorders are on the rise in Sri Lanka as seen in the rest of the world. Unfortunately, services related to the Neuro developmental disorders, specifically for Autism spectrum disorders are at a bare minimum in Sri Lanka. Only a few child psychiatrists and clinical psychologists actively practice in Sri Lanka with even fewer focusing on Autism spectrum disorders. Public awareness, early screening and early intervention are extremely important for better outcome of these disorders. IMHO is committed to improve these services for the children.
Estimated Annual Cost to Provide Services: $20,000
