The school boasts 18 classrooms, a dark room, a playground, and a pool for aquatic treatment, all designed to meet the special needs of students with autism, IRNA reported.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a disability that affects the brain and can lead to difficulties with social interaction, attention, movement, and learning. While ASD can be diagnosed at different ages, its symptoms typically appear during the first two years of life.
The construction of this specialized school is a crucial step towards educational justice for autistic children in Iran. It provides a safe and supportive environment where they can learn and grow without facing the barriers and challenges that often come with traditional schools.
With the prevalence of ASD on the rise globally, it is essential that more specialized schools like this one are established in our country to ensure that all children have access to quality education and equal opportunities for success.
