Inspirational tale...

Good evening... I wanted to share this inspiring New York Times article about this very real, and for many, daily struggle of living with a member with Autism.  I want us to all give a big round of applause for the Canha family, and hats off to Ms. Stanton-Paule.  The article is very long, but do take some time to read through it and watch the video

I do not want to be political on this page, but I just want to share my hope that real change will come soon; that children and adults with disabilities will find the resources and support they need in Kuwait and worldwide.

Justin Canha, a young artist with autism, prepares for life as an independent adult. Links to special features with Mr. Canha and his art can be found in the article text.

For local resources please check:

  • Kuwait Center for Autism- unfortunately the website does not seem to work, if anyone has a current website/address please send it to me.
  • Applied Behavior Center of Kuwait (ABC)
  • Kuwait Dream Center- also no working website
