Please note that in light of President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement regarding COVID-19, we have postponed the 2020 ETHAN Autism Awareness Parade and Spot Blu Competition until further notice.

We will however continue our "Go Blue for Autism" campaign throughout April. We encourage you to decorate your homes, and businesses in blue and to dress in blue to show your support for autism awareness. We have "Go Blue for Autism" stickers and badges for sale and will distribute these to shops in and around Mossel Bay to be sold on behalf of ETHAN. All funds raised from these will be used towards therapy service costs.

We are committed to supporting the autism community and will keep you all updated on our Facebook. Please stay safe and look after yourselves and your loved ones πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

The Education and Training Hub for Autism Needs (ETHAN) is a non-profit company with the mission of educating and empowering parents, caregivers and individuals affected by autism spectrum disorders (autism).

It is spearheaded by parents and grandparents who have dealt first hand with the challenges associated with having a child with an autism spectrum disorder. The struggle of getting a diagnosis, finding a school or interventions suited to your child’s specific needs, and navigating through various developmental specialists. We understand the frustration and loneliness of dealing with a child that is different. We want to make the journey easier for others.  To date; we have run various successful training programmes and have other projects to the tune of R240 000.00 that are just waiting to be implemented.  These include: setting up a local autism diagnostic team, autism specific training for families and professionals, autism awareness campaigns and respite care for families. We need your help to make a difference.
