Microsoft partners WRTS on coding programme for autistic kids – The Malaysia Reserve
Kids gymnasium We Rock The Spectrum (WRTS) announced its long-term partnership with Microsoft Malaysia to enhance the development of autistic children in the country.
This partnership will include coding experience as part of the gym’s programme.
“We are trying to empower autistic children with technology, with the hopes that they can overcome challenges they face,” Microsoft MD K Raman (picture) told The Malaysian Reserve (TMR).
He said the partnership to include the coding programme is in line with the company’s efforts to democratise technology and bridge the opportunity divide.
“We believe empowerment begins with inclusion and technology should be shared with everyone, especially youths, as today’s digital natives are tomorrow’s digital workforce,” he added.
Microsoft organised an “Hour of Code” in collaboration with WRTS to commemorate the World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) 2018 recently.
