Autism Workshop


Alokdhara once again has the honour of bringing C-DAC a Central Government Under taking to create more opportunities for the children living with autism.C-DAC helps with a computer generated softwere which tries to bring out emotion through various VDO clipping on the screen. It evokes emotion positive and negetive through the visual stimulation and mark the reaction of children produces. A tool to measure emotional understanding and expression indirectly induced computer graphics and animation.
Children with autism mostly cannot show there emotion whether they are happy, angry or sad. Had they have any means to show or express their emotion many unwanted behaviour would have come under control also they would have been better understood by their so called normal counterparts. The tool also helps in developing speech ward and language.
The tool also helps over all assessment of the interevention programme of a child. A person with higher cognitive level may express happiness, sadness or anger.If a child with autism expresses emotion when the device is in action any faint expression of emotion will lead us to believe some change of improvement has taken place. The graph is showing upward movement and the intervention programme is on the right track

Workshop dates: 12th January & 13th January, 2013
