Nana Kojo, father of a son with autism, and 13 others created the Autism Foundation of Ghana to help support children with autism. Currently there is one school in Ghana, Autism Awareness, Care, and Training Centre, that specializes in care and therapy for kids with autism. Kojo and others would like to see a special education teacher provided for every school in Ghana, but there currently are not funds for this. Part the lack of money is because of lack of awareness of autism in the country.

Steven Adu, the Director of Ghana Education Service’s Basic Education Division, explains, “that awareness is important if autistic children are going to get the help they need. The more people know about autism, the more they’ll pressure their MPs to provide funding my department needs to give autistic children special care.”
