Andy Speaks 4 Special Needs Persons Africa was founded by Sylvia Moraa Mochabo, a mother of 3 boys, 2 who are on the Autism Spectrum Disorder. Andy Speaks started its journey in January 2019, inspired by the  challenges experienced by founder while raising her 2 sons who also have a comorbid of Epilepsy/ Convulsive disorder.  She did baseline and hands on research in the USA, UK & locally to bench mark the status of services policies and intervention for the NEUROdiverse community.

We focus on the following 4 Global Sustainable Developmental Goals:
