Raising an Autistic child: the story of Tebogo

When he was two years old, Tebogo Mosarwe knew her son was different from other children his age. Unlike other children, he was hyper active and did not make an effort to utter words or show signs that he understood anything communicated to him. This worried the mother. She began looking for specialised treatment to understand her son’s condition. “As he grew up, the challenges became more elaborate,” the mother of three says. She could not maintain house helps as they left one after the other. Her social life also took a nosedive. She started to stay away from friends. Not because she wanted to, but because her son was hyper active. And most people would not be comfortable with that. “We took him to a kinder garden and there were always complaints. The teachers could not handle him,” she said. Due to the challenges and the added responsibilities, Mosarwe resigned from her job.
