Through partnering with Dubai Autism Center, we hope to raise awareness on how early intervention, attention and care can greatly aid children with Autism Spectrum disorder.”
Autism is a lifelong neurobiological disorder that impairs communication, social interaction and the way individuals perceive the world around them. Children with autism have difficulty in verbal and non-verbal communication. One out of every 88 children will have autism.
