Step Up 4 Autism is a community-based organization registered in Kenya that focuses on improving the lives of children with autism through creating intervention programs and creating autism awareness and acceptance.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), commonly referred to as Autism, is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects thousands of children and adults in Kenya. The condition is characterized by challenges in socializing, behaviour, speech and nonverbal communication. Those living with Autism are often ostracized by society as a result of ignorance on the condition. This ignorance also leads to misdiagnosis and exploitation of those living with Autism. Therefore, there is a definite need for increased Autism awareness in Kenya.become a volunteer
