Following a request from local professionals, the ICare4Autism-Pakistan project will increase awareness and diagnosis of autism in Pakistan and develop an Autism Center. Families of children and adults in Pakistan often feel isolated by the lack of knowledge, understanding and services. Exacerbated by stigma, autism remains relatively unknown and icare4autism is working to support those on the ground in changing this.
Some of the project’s key players and their roles include:
- Deremiah *CPE (USA): aid in the development of customer care
- Dr. Farah Deeba (Ireland): develop the vision for the Autism Center in Pakistan
- Naveed Ahmad (Pakistan): head public relations
- Wazhat Ali (Pakistan): facilitate relationships and key networks to reach key figures in Pakistan
Through this wonderful collaboration, ICare4Autism plans to successfully bring awareness and acceptance of autism to Pakistan.
