This year, PGS Lighting Electrical supports the World Autism Awareness Day with lighting up in blue its Electrical Store at Athalassas Avenue (Strovolos) and its Lighting showroom in Paphos.
This action is done to support the events and activities of other organizations to inform the society about autism. The lighting of our stores in blue will last for the whole month of April.
Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder is defined as a developmental disorder that occurs in childhood. Autism negatively affects a person’s social, cognitive, language and communication skills.
The last decade has been a dramatic increase in the incidence of autism. New data from the World Health Organization estimates that the average global incidence of autism is 62/10 000, which indicates that one child out of 160 may be at risk for developing Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The positive thing is that through the specialized help of experts, including psychologists and educators, autistic children can live better in their environment.
