Dubai Autism Center successfully concluded its 15th Annual Autism Awareness Campaign.
The annual campaign was launched on World Autism Awareness Day on April 2 with the aim of educating society about the importance of empowering individuals with autism and integrating them into mainstream life.
The month long programme of events and activities was organised with the support of the public and private sectors and members of the community.
Outlining the key results of the campaign, Mohammed Al Emadi, Director General and Board Member of the Dubai Autism Center, said: “During the campaign, the Dubai Autism Center witnessed a high turnout of parents keen to take advantage of the free consultation sessions for children suspected of having autism. The Centre’s clinic registered over 110 requests for consultations just in the month of April.”
“Despite the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, awareness webinars helped us disseminate campaign messages among a wide range of institutions. Over 1,250 people attended the webinars organised by us,” he said.
