Helping Middle Eastern children, and their families, with autism and other special needs.
Academy of Health
The Senses Cultural Academy of Health site is for those families in which a child has a disorder such as autism, Down syndrome, fragile X syndrome, 22q syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) or other type of significant delay in development or learning. Many of these syndromes or disorders, except ADHD, result in intellectual disability (formerly referred to as “mental retardation”) and/or serious behavior problems. Most of these disorders result from genetic mutations or problems with the chromosomes. In some instances, the environment contributes to a child’s learning or development problems. Sometimes, we simply don’t know the cause.
The Senses Cultural is dedicated to creating a more peaceful and healthy environment by fostering understanding through sharing ideas and the arts across the globe. We cultivate a national and international network of artists, scholars and cultural advocates. In addition, we produce events that expose their work to audiences beyond their own geographic and social borders. Senses Cultural offers opportunities to collaborate, sponsor, host and promote projects that fulfill our common goals. Together we encourage projects that create cross-cultural understanding and tolerance. To visit the main Senses Cultural website, click here: www.sensescultural.org
