Orphaned and Abandoned Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

As the number of orphans escalates around the world, there is an increasing demand for sensory stimulation, nurturing touch and palliative care within orphanages and childcare settings. It is the vision of the Liddle Kidz Foundation Global to make a true difference for children who have been orphaned, along with their caregivers who lack the necessary support to provide them with best developmental care possible.

According to the Autism Research Institute, Autism is a severe developmental disorder that begins at birth or within the first two-and-a-half years of life. Most autistic children are perfectly normal in appearance, but spend their time engaged in puzzling and disturbing behaviors which are markedly different from those of typical children. Less severe cases may be diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) or with Asperger's Syndrome (these children typically have normal speech, but they have many "autistic" social and behavioral problems).

Autism, ADD, ADHD, PDD, NLD, and Asperger's Syndrome were once either unknown or very rare. In 1980, autism diagnoses alone were 1 in 5,000; the most current data from the CDC says it's 1 in 91 children.   Boys appear to be affected four times as much as girls, the rate could be as high as 1 in 70.   There are many theories, however no one can say exactly what causes autism and its related disorders, including Asperger's Syndrome, an autism- like condition usually without language delay, and various Pervasive Development Disorders (PDDs).

Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) interfere with normal development of the brain in the areas that influence reasoning, social interaction, motor skills, communication skills, and attention. Children with autism spectrum disorders are typically deficient in verbal and nonverbal communication, social interaction, and play activities.

Liddle Kidz Foundation Global uses nurturing touch to encourage bonding, social interaction, enhance verbal and nonverbal communication, decrease tactile aversion and increase Oxytocin.

Liddle Kidz Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that uses the power of touch to reach the world’s most vulnerable children with experiences of appropriate nurturing touch that they often lack.   We collaborate with caregivers and healthcare professionals to raise awareness of the practice and benefits of nurturing touch for children.
