Kuwaiti autistic children unlock senses in engaging workshop

Kuwait’s cultural body sponsored a workshop on Monday allowing a team of autistic children to put its senses into use through a vast array of activities, hailing the endeavor as an effort to assimilate them into society.

Reaching out to disabled and autistic children is tantamount to a “humanitarian obligation,” the team’s leader Abeer Al-Safran told KUNA, emphasizing that children with disabilities are equally entitled to a life of prosperity and development.

On the objectives behind assembling the team, she said it aims to provide autistic and disabled children the opportunity to hone their skills through academic and artistic activities, subsequently generating the media’s attention on the importance of this endeavor.
