April is a special month for people living in Dubai. This month is set aside for people living with autism. The autism month starts on 2nd, and it is filled with so many activities for people participating. In 2016, the special month was celebrated in style. A non-profit making organization known as Autism Rocks planned a unique fun filled event where people could attend with their families. Anyone interested to attend the festival was supposed pay Dh 50.
This year, the festival was quite different. Autism Rocks had invited some of the top rappers in America such as Flo Rida and Tyga to perform for the families attending the event. The primary objective of the festival was to raise money for people living with autism. Some of the money would also be used to do more research about the condition.
Autism is not a rare condition, but any people in the world look down upon people suffering from the disease. The common developmental disorder mostly affects how a person relates to the people around them and how they experience the world around them. Medical experts have not been able to know the cause of the incurable condition up to date. People suffering from the condition need a lot of support and love. Their families also suffer because of the stigmatization. In the modern times, the people suffering from autism have increased significantly, and this means that awareness must be created.
