ASHA is a Holistic Multidisciplinary Task Oriented Academy which works with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders - training and educating the children, training parents and teachers, creating awareness in the community and lots more.
ASHA started in 1995 in a make-shift building with 3 children, one special educator and one volunteer. Over the years ASHA has expanded and moved into a bigger building and has helped over 250 individuals with ASD and their families.
ASHA's mission statement reads as "We endeavour to render exceptional love, care, hope and educational assistance to children with special needs to help them develop and utilize their potential" - and we continue to work with these mission guidelines 20 years since the organisation started.
