in the Science Daily on Oct 17, 2013. The article is about the discoveries made in teaching
children suffering from Autism. The new video is the latest technology that can be used by
schools to teach children suffering from autism. Therefore, it is an article targeted to the parents

because, it provides a solution to one of the psychological problems that face people. It is also
important in our class context as it expounds our skills and knowledge about methods of

advancement of knowledge about management of autism and in expanding my skills and
knowledge about the disorder.
