Aspe­cial har­mony

Friday - - The Big Story -

r Ab­dulka­reem Sul­tan Al Olama, CEO of Al Jalila Foun­da­tion, based in Dubai Health­care City, which set up a free pro­gramme called Ta’louf to em­power par­ents whose chil­dren have spe­cial needs, says, “We start our new pro­gramme for par­ents of chil­dren with autism in Jan­uary and al­ready have 40 par­ents signed up. Plus we’ve or­gan­ised a sep­a­rate course to show teach­ers how to get the best out of chil­dren with spe­cial needs.

“One of the most im­por­tant things with some­thing like this, though, is get­ting that mes­sage out to par­ents that they’re not alone in this sit­u­a­tion, there are oth­ers in sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tions and that there is help out there. The way Fri­day got that mes­sage over was truly ex­cel­lent.” Find the full story at http://bit. ly/1qkdiCr
