Globally, 1 in 160 children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to World Health Organization (WHO) report. In the Gulf region, significant steps in terms of identifying children with ASD and extending the different aspects of support for them has already been taken but there’s so much more that needs to be addressed. Due to this reason, we felt the urgency of community involvement, from trainers, educators, health professionals, family members to policymakers, in the early diagnosis and treatment of children under this spectrum.

This conference aims to take that brave step to raise public awareness by organizing the 1st Regional Autism Conference. We are grateful to have a rich and informative program covering genetics, autism and epidemiological aspects of the spectrum to be delivered by world-renowned speakers. We urge you to join us in this noble cause. Together, we can change the lives of our children, make them smile and see the beauty of the world regardless of this challenging condition.

Overall Objectives:
