Comment to:
what is the local name for Autism in GH?

I like your question, kwa. Sorry my post is not to give you the answer because i don't know it myself. However i see the need for our society to devise a nomenclature for intellectual disabilities and psychological disorders. As at now our description for various conditions are lumped up in one or two expressions only. This lack of differentiation contributes to the stigmatisation of people with autism (and other intellectual and physical disabilities).
I haven't answered kwa's question yet so anybody who knows it should please help us
