Rajouri, June 18: BGSBU, College of Nursing, Jammu organised Autistic Pride Day in collaboration with Direct Early Intervention Centre (DEIC) at Govt. Hospital Gandhi Nagar, Jammu. 
Students of 3rd and 4th year of BSc Nursing of BGSBU Nursing College Jammu participated and performed a skit. The aim of skit was to raise awareness amongst those who are not on the autistic spectrum disorder but they see autistic people requiring treatment as unique individuals. 
During skit students explained about behavioural issues and free treatment of autism given by Government. In his message, Prof Akbar Masood Vice Chancellor BGSBU conveyed that the significance of Autistic Pride Day is to help parents and society understand the hidden talents and strengths of those with autism. The day is observed to shift the attitude away from societies negative views towards acceptance. Parents see their child going through all the discrimination of society and the resulting trauma they experience. What makes them more helpless is that they can't do anything to improve their condition. Parents also go through caregiver burden as autism demands special attention, they struggle all through the clock to make their children acceptable in the society. Session ended with a message that those with autism are not diseased but just different from others. The event was supervised by Dr Titi Xavier Associate Dean, Nursing Colleges and coordinated by Dr Pushpendra Kumar, Principal, College of Nursing Jammu.
Others present during the event were Ms. Priti, Child Psychologist, Dr. Urvashi, Physiotherapist, Ruksana, Program Coordinator and faculty members Swati Jamwal Khushbu Nisar and Farhat Riyaz.
