Hamza*, 5, helps paint an autism inclusion mural in his community in northern Jordan.

When Hamza first joined our program, he had no way to express his wants and needs. He would grow frustrated and become aggressive toward others as he tried to make them understand him. When Hamza joined our program, he learned to point to communicate. He also learned to eat on his own and to play games with other children. His sisters learned how to teach him while playing with him at home. His mother learned skills that she can use at home and share with other parents of autistic children, and teachers in his community learned strategies that will equip them to welcome him into a kindergarten classroom in the fall.

Donate today to help other autistic children like Hamza, their families, and communities, whose lives have been affected by war and conflict, develop the skills they need to thrive.
