A new school for children living with autism has opened in the South African township of Soweto.

While many private schools in South Africa offer special care for children with autism, the high fees are too expensive for many parents.
 
South African officials say Thulasizwe school the first state-run school for children with special needs, and parents do not pay fees for their children's registration.
