During its debate, the legislators told of a story of an elderly grandmother who trekked over 10 kilometres to find a school for her autistic grandchild, albeit it not being properly equipped. The policy has been hailed by autism awareness organisation, Autism Lights, who said it will ease the burden of the many families in the country. A policy director with the group Wamaratu Chege told Standard that if it was properly implemented, finding schools for autistic children will now be easy. He added that they will be proving autism-based trainings on Applied behaviour analysis across various counties this month.
