US BASED ORGANIZATIONS TEAM UP WITH GHANA PROFESSIONALS TO PRESENT LIFE WITHOUT BARRIERS, AUTISM & DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES SERIES

The World Health Organization estimates that 20% of children worldwide are affected by a disabling mental illness. Developmental disabilities worldwide are commonly underreported which poses a problem for the caregiver and individuals affected by the illness as they get older and enter society.
Life Without Barriers is a series of workshops seeking to address the barriers that parents and developmental disabilities, such as Autism in children and adults.

We provide the autism internship position in partnership with the only autism centre in Ghana. While developed countries understand autism as one of the leading developmental disabilities in the world, the general public in Ghana has little or no understanding of autism.

Based in Accra, the Autism Awareness Care and Training Centre (AACT) is a local support and education center for children with autism that was founded in 1998 by Mrs. Serwah Quaynor, a mother of a child with autism.

Ghanaian star actress, Nadia Buari recently celebrated her birthday with the students and staff of the Autism Awareness Care and Training Centre(AACT) , a local support and education centre for children with autism.
