2nd April is World Autism Awareness Day and we decided to stage a play because visual and theatrical medium is always the best to explain the difficulties faced by the children and their parents in the society.
The concept of the play was given by Nita Diwan. The play was enacted by children of Nautanki Kolkata - a group working with children having Thalassemia. The Facilitator of the play was Ms. Prakriti Dutta, (masters in Music from Edinburgh) the director of the play Dr. Abhishek Bose (professor of Calcutta University).
This play focused hugely on music and physical acting, as an alternative communication medium, as most of the children with Autism are non- verbal.
The play was followed by panel discussion to explain the need and contents of the play. The panelists were Dr. J. R. Ram (consultant psychiatrist), Dr. Sudha Kaul (Trustee, IICP), Ms. Prakriti Dutta (M. Sc., Music)
The event was attended by a number of pediatricians, neurologists, neuro-psychiatrists, surgeons, orthopedics and other doctors from different streams. It was also attended by different school heads and representatives of pre-schools, montessories, high schools and colleges. Students and teachers from psychology department also attended the event. There were other professionals from field of disability who attended as well as asked several questions to the panelist.
The children and parents enjoyed it the most and we got a standing ovation. The event was no doubt a huge success.
