Un Bus Pour L'Autisme
12 avenue régiment normandie niemand
A Bus for Autism’s goal is to inform families in South-East Asia about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), while offering diagnosis consultations and orienting children towards possible solutions. We also educate and train personnel (nurses and special education teachers...) as to the specifics of the developmental disorder, still widely unknown in some remote areas. Our coordinator, clinical psychologist and psychology instructor Leslie Marneau, has been working with autistic people for almost 10 years. This aim of seeking out these families came about after an initial meeting with the Vientiane-based Association for Autism (AFA) at the Vientiane Autism Center (VAC), the only specialized institution currently existing in the country.
