Smt. Smrithy Rajesh shared her experience as a parent of a special child with Autism. She started working as a co-therapist for her son and is a qualified Special Educator certified by the Karnataka Parents’ Association for Mentally Retarded Citizens (KPAMRC). She works as a Special Educator at Bubbles Centre for Autism, Bangalore. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is stigmatized and lesser known in India. Smrithy’s keen interest in training her son to use AAC and spreading awareness using social media is inspiring. When she saw remarkable progress in her child with the techniques she used, she created a YouTube channel and blog to share her ideas and thoughts with other parents.
