Autism can pose many challenges to children who suffer from it. However, with proper help and support, children with autism can overcome many of these challenges. Thus, having resources for such help and support available for children with autism is very important.
Recently, Sesame Workshop, the organization responsible for the popular children’s television show “Sesame Street,” announced that it is starting an autism initiative called “See Amazing in All Children.” One of the things the initiative will involve is the creation of digital resources for children with autism. The resources will be aimed at helping to teach kids with autism how to perform certain daily tasks and how to play with other children.
Another thing that the initiative will include is a public awareness campaign about autism. According to the Disability Scoop article which reported on this story, the Sesame Street brand and Sesame Street characters will be used in this campaign. One of the goals of the campaign is to correct misconceptions the public may have about children with autism.
One hopes that this autism initiative will be successful in its various aims and goals.
There are many resources and forms of assistance out there for children with autism and their families. One type of financial assistance that child autism sufferers from low-income families may be eligible for are Supplemental Security Income benefits. Disability benefits attorneys can help families of child autism sufferers who meet the qualification requirements for SSI benefits with the process of filing a benefits application for their loved one.
