LONDON, 3 Julai (Bernama) -- Permata Negara sedang mencari kaedah

pengajaran terbaik untuk kanak-kanak autistik untuk program terbaharunya,

Permata Kurnia iaitu program menyeluruh intervensi awal untuk kanak-kanak

autistik dan keluarga mereka.

Penaungnya Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor berkata Permata Negara sedang melihat

pendekatan terbaik dalam mengendalikan kanak-kanak autistik.

Beliau berkata jawatankuasa kerja yang ditubuh untuk tujuan itu kini

mengkaji program intervensi awal yang dilaksanakan negara luar seperti United

Kingdom dan Amerika Syarikat, yang sesuai untuk dilaksanakan di Malaysia.

Kerajaan telah memperuntukkan RM28 juta untuk menubuhkan pusat Permata

Kurnia atau Permata Autisme di kawasan seluas 1.04 hektar di Sentul, Kuala

Lumpur dan pusat itu dijangka siap pada 2015, katanya kepada pemberita Malaysia

di sini Selasa.

Rosmah berkata demikian selepas melawat TreeHouse School di Woodside Avenue

di utara London, sebuah sekolah khas untuk kanak-kanak autisme yang dikendalikan

pertubuhan bukan berasaskan keuntungan, yang ditubuhkan kumpulan ibu bapa pada

1997.

ROSMAH-AUTISME 2 (AKHIR) LONDON

Sekolah itu dilengkapi dengan guru-guru berkelayakan, profesional Applied

Behaviour Analysis, ahli terapi pertuturan dan bahasa serta rawatan.

Rosmah berkata jawatankuasa kerja Permata Kurnia, yang terdiri daripada

wakil Kementerian Kesihatan, Kementerian Pendidikan dan Universiti Kebangsaan

Malaysia akan memutuskan teknik terkini dan terbaik untuk dilaksanakan di pusat

Permata Kurnia.

Untuk peringkat awal, kira-kira 100 kes kanak-kanak autistik ringan akan

diambil, katanya.

Terdahulu Rosmah diberi taklimat oleh ketua pegawai eksekutif Ambitious

About Autism, Jolanta Lesota, badan kebajikan nasional untuk kanak-kanak dan

remaja autisme, yang membangunkan perkhidmatan seperti TreeHouse School dan

Ambitious Support.

Autisme merupakan kecacatan perkembangan tegal yang melibatkan fungsi otak

sehingga mengakibatkan gangguan pada perkembangan komunikasi, perilaku,

kemampuan sosial, pengetahuan dan belajar.

Penghidap autisme biasanya tidak boleh berdikari dan perlu bergantung kepada

keluarga mereka.

Kajian oleh Kementerian Kesihatan pada 2004 mendapati kadar autisme ialah

satu dalam setiap 600 kelahiran untuk kanak-kanak berusia 15 tahun ke bawah,

yang bermakna kira-kira 13,333 kanak-kanak mengalami autisme pada masa itu.

Kadar terkini dijangka lebih tinggi.
