Accordingly, a total of VND 512 billion sourced from the State budget will be added to support autistic children and people with mental disorders.

Earlier, the Vietnamese Government designed a program on social support and functional rehabilitation for people with mental disorders and children on the autism spectrum until 2030. 

The program covers a string of solutions to give autistic children better access to health care, education, vocational guidance, occupational therapy, and cultural and sports activities. 

A network of support centers to provide care and functional rehabilitation for autistic children will also be built.

The program targets to give 80 percent of children on the autism spectrum improved access to health care services by 2025, 70 percent of children under six years of age a screening for early detection of autism, and 80 percent of autistic children access to kindergarten and primary education./.
