The attention of the Ministry of Education and Culture to autistic persons in Indonesia is still minimal. The proof is that many autistic children are still refused for being students in some inclusive schools. A member of Indonesia Autism Foundation, Ferina Widodo, said that rejection occurs particularly among autistic children from lower middle economic class families. The unfairness such as this is experienced among others by autistic children in Serang and Pandeglang.
Another problem, said Ferina, is the limited ability of educators in teaching autistic children. Not all teachers have the ability to teach autistic children.
