Despite the lack of official data in Ethiopia on autism by estimation it is believed that 0.70 % of the total population lives with Autism. Infants often appear un affected as babies, since they will complete the normal developmental targets including early speech but fail to develop normal social behaviors as toddlers. In Ethiopia 75 % of autistic cases have learning disability accompanying there autistic case, that?s why most of the children?s will change school so many times but fail to reach the expected goal. Autistic cases in Ethiopia face a lot of stigma even by their parents, more than 80 % of these individuals are locked down in dark rooms being chained to control they unusual behavior. In 2009 officials in Minnesota health department have agreed on a startling fact that there are high rates of autism in young Ethiopian Children?s living in USA, the Ethiopian children?s are two to seven times more likely to suffer from autism. In Ethiopia there is only one autistic center operating in the capital, Addis Abeba since 2002, giving a special teaching for autistic Children?s who are lucky to be there but still we have a lot of these childes looking for special education ( Nia foundation, joy autism center ) In Ethiopia Alzheimer?s disease is becoming the most common cause of morbidity and mortality for instance, the death rate per 100,000 cases of dementia in Ethiopia is 9.7, considered to be medium but very frightening when compared with other countries in Africa Ethiopia stands 2nd among African countries and 36th among the globe based on the world health ranking report.
