Bhubaneswar, Oct. 12: Manage Autism Now (MAN) is going to organise an “Elocution Contest” for Odisha capital Bhubaneswar October 14 to understand the hidden talent and potential within the autistic children.

The contest will be held at DAV School of Business Management (DSBM) at Unit-8 DAV School.

More than 30 autistic children from different schools will take part in the contest.

MAN in support with DSBM has been conducting this elocution competition for last five years. The contest will be conducted under the guidance of Dr G N Mishra, Principal, DSBM, Bhubaneswar.

MAN is primarily engaged in providing appropriate therapy to autistic children in order to bring them to the main stream society.

It aims at improving communication, cognitive skills, social skills and also enhance the attention span of the kids through music therapy, play therapy, special education, yoga and many other types of training.

MAN Trust chairperson Swarnalata Mishra says, “The main purpose of organising this elocution contest is to know hidden talents in autistic children is to bring out the best in them.”

Under the guidance of Sri Madan Mohan Panda, Chairman, DAV Public Schools, DSBM has been giving constant support and helping to MAN since its inception in august 2008 and encouraging differently-abled children to stand in the society.

Sri Madan Mohan Panda, Chairman, DAV Public Schools -cum- Trustee, MAN Trust said, “We are all aware that autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates and makes sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition, meaning that it affects people in different ways, making awareness and diagnosis even more important. Some children have mild autism and some have severe autism and the idea that one education system fits all does not work. That is one of the major issues that needs to be addressed and this elocution contest will help teachers and parents in understanding the hidden talent of autistic children and lead the way in finding new method of teaching.”

In Bhubaneswar, there is a sizable number of autistic children who need special care. To take care of these special children, the Autism Therapy Centre(ATC) under tutelage of Swarnalata Mishra , (run by MAN) has been working round the year and following holistic approach to bring autistic children to the mainstream.
