Senses Cultural and the Department of Neuroscience at Shiraz University in Iran cohosted their first autism training event since signing a Memorandum of Understanding in March 2018.
The event, held Tuesday, May 1st, was in Shiraz at DANA Brain Health Institute, which is linked with Shiraz University.
Having a child with autism is a challenge. This workshop was organized to help parents navigate the many challenges, ranging for behavioral support to medical treatment. Over 50 parents with autistic kids attended the workshop in Shiraz. Parents had the opportunity to talk about concerns and getting practical solutions in advice in various aspects of handling the issues surrounding parenting an autistic kid. Speakers included Senses Cultural Advisory Board members Dr. Mohammad Nami and Dr. Marzieh Forgani.
The MOU signed between Senses Cultural and Shiraz University in March 2018 aims to to foster research and training education initiatives in the field of autism and fragile X syndrome on an international scale.
Senses Cultural and Shiraz University hope to pursue a wide spectrum of research activity ranging from genetics to behavior and cognitive and also therapeutic aspects of autism and fragile X syndrome.
We are planning to organize more trainings, counseling programs and workshops either face-to-face or in webinar format.
