    1. I know NIMHANS child psychiatry provide assessment as well as treatment support for children and young adults with autism. People like Prof. Satish Girimaji are national experts on autism. Outside, there are some paediatricians who have developed special interest in this area. I have not come across any payshiatrists with specialist skills in autism.

    It may also be appropriate to include “The Spastics Society of Karnataka”. Another centre that could be included is the Parents Association of Persons with Cerebral Palsy and Associated Disorders (unique by its nature of being an NGO run by Parents of differently abled adults) (PAPCP).
