SPECIAL NEEDS

Autism awareness in Silver Spring MD 8/10/19

Since most Africans are still embarrassed because of cultural stigma to bring their kids with autism or other special needs in public, my family and I went to MD from CA to educate our community about autism. We also had a mental health professional talk about mental health in the African community. It was a very successful awareness event.

Junior's Place of Hope was started by Henrietta Bassey. She is a devoted mother to her 27 year old son who has autism. She has done everything in her power to help create an environment that will accept her son and others who have autism and other special needs. They deserve to live in a society that treats them with respect and dignity.
