Autism, or more appropriately, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) includes a group of developmental disorders. All these needs must be addressed by teachers who are aware of this behaviour and are trained to help the child instead of dealing with them as they do with other children. Qatar Airways continues its successful collaboration with Hamad Medical Cooperation (HMC) for the second consecutive year by hosting a program of activities throughout the month created to raise awareness of the autism spectrum disorder. The front desk is staffed Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.to 6 p.m.
To celebrate World Autism Month, the team at Sidra Medicine is organising an art exhibition highlighting works by children with ASD which will run from April 29 to May 3 at the Sidra Medicine Outpatient Clinic.
