The Special Centre for Autism was opened after the Ministry of Social Development issued a decree for the creation of centres for the rehabilitation of persons that have special needs. Along with the interest of Sheik Mohamed Bin Suleiman Al Taie, who believed that “The establishing of the Specialty Centre for Autism and its attached Clinic has come out as a result of our belief in the importance of bearing the social responsibility towards our beloved Country.”
The Specialist Centre for autism was created, providing various services targeted towards encouraging a better understanding of autism and providing specialist services for people with autism and those who care for them.

We support this kind of activity and value that a small act can make a difference. Awareness is the key in spreading the information.”
