In conjunction with World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) and as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), Sunway Pyramid continues the Together For Good: Community Building efforts by bringing in Autsome to increase public awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and support the community along with their families. We aim to provide an inclusive shopping environment through on-ground activities, exclusive privileges, facilities, workshops and others.
WHAT IS AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD)?
What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? Well, let us tell you all about it in this 2-min read.
Imagine your brain is taking a ride on a roller coaster. Sometimes it goes up, down and all of a sudden slow or fast. That’s how it is for each individual with autism whereby their brains are wired differently.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is actually a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects an individual’s conditions such as delayed language development, social interaction, repetitive behaviour and stereotyped actions like rocking back and forth.
If you’re thinking it’s a disease or illness that would spread. The answer is no! It’s all about how the brain works differently from other people and it’s something you’re born with. Once detected the individual could go through therapy that would help with the conditions mentioned earlier.
At Sunway Pyramid, we understand that everyone is different and that’s what makes us all unique and special in our very own way. Embrace who you are and be proud of yourself!
