Dubai centre holds training in autism care
Dubai, December 28, 2011
The Dubai Early Childhood Development Centre (DECDC) recently organised a special training programme in cooperation with the Scott Autism Centre at the Florida Institute of Technology, USA.
The training programme, under the theme of applied behavioural analysis, follows a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on partnership and exchange of expertise in fields of autism and disability signed earlier between the two parties.
“The training reflects our growing relationship with the Scott Autism Centre and follows their visit to DECDC earlier this year to assess the centre training needs. The Scott Autism Centre has developed a detailed and comprehensive report and training programme based on their assessment,” said Dr Bushra Al Mulla, director of DECDC, a key initiative of the Community Development Authority in Dubai (CDA).
"The Scott Autism Centre is a world-leading centre of its kind. We are happy to welcome and them and we look forward to working with them, sharing knowledge and best practices in providing support for children with disabilities," she added.
The five-day training programme covered theoretical and practical applications in treating children with disabilities, autism and in early intervention, in addition to various elements of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).
Specialists within and outside DECDC attended the training and expressed appreciation for the programme and the learning opportunities it provided. Attendees were given certificates by the Scott Autism Centre highlighting their completed training hours. – TradeArabia News Service
