Institute Director Rana Mahmood al-Khafaji said that the conference recognized this special day through a symposium held to train the parents on the proper way to raise their autistic children.
“Several lectures were delivered by experts from Egypt focusing on the modern scientific methods that the families and teachers should follow in order to merge these poor children into society,” al-Khafaji added.
