The aim of the workshop was to train the health care professionals (pediatricians, psychiatrists and psychologists) to diagnose and certify Autism correctly using INCLEN and ISAA tools, which are the basis for issuing Certificate for Autism. The participants in the workshop were trained as Master Trainers who in turn will train other professionals in their States / UTs using INCLEN and ISAA tools to diagnose and certify Autism. This will ensure homogeneity in Autism diagnosis and certification, and enable individuals and families to avail the privileges.

The Government has come up with various schemes and policies for persons with Autism. The National Trust for the welfare of persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and Multiple Disabilities has been implementing 10 schemes for early intervention, education, vocational training, skill development, health care facility and residential care facility to persons with these disabilities through over 450 registered organizations in the country.
