Natalia Vodianova said her Naked Heart Foundation is launching educational programs for children with deep autism in six schools in Russia. “We’re actually the first ones to do it — there’s only one school in the whole country that provides education to children with deep autism,” she said.
The foundation will also host a forum on autism in Moscow from Oct. 14 to 17. “In Russia, the question of autism is very new. It was just introduced in 2007 as a separate condition from schizophrenia,” the face of Guerlain’s Shalimar fragrance explained.
