The Rainbow

A play on autism awareness

 “The Rainbow” a devised theatre production is an attempt to create awareness and sensitize people towards autism. 

Autism Spectrum Disorder, is one of the lesser understood and misunderstood disorders. With the growing technological devices in our homes, autism among millennials is on the rise.  Children with autism are very capable and creative if given the right environment, early on with the right therapy. 

Often parents of such children find it difficult to accept that their children cannot fit into mainstream schools. Furthermore, our education system and our societal expectations lack sensitivity and inclusivity towards individuals with different abilities. This makes it even harder for families to seek help and support their family members with autism without the fear of being judged or questioned.
