Senses Cultural will be co-hosting two Living with Autism workshop at an autism school in Tehran with the support of the Tehran Ministry of Education for Children with Special Needs on May 27, 2018. The workshops are in collaboration with our sister company Shokraneh Mavaddat Jahani, a group in Iran promoting the well-being of mothers, families, and children with special need.
The first Living with Autism workshop, hosted during the day, will be for families with children living with autism. The conference will deal with the nuances of living with autism, with workshops specifically designed to help parents gain more knowledge about the disorder. Families will hear from Dr. Ismaili about massage therapy and sensory stimulation as autism treatment. We’ll also hear from Ms. Sharifi about behavioral reform and from Mr. Mesbah Ansari about the role of excitement and motivation in clinical behavior of people with autism.
The second Living with Autism workshop at the autism school in Tehran will also be on May 27th later that evening. These workshops will be focused on students and coaches workings with children with autism. Dr. Mohammad Nami of Shiraz University will discuss the effects of sleep problems in patients with autism spectrum, and Ms. Azadeh Zakaria will discuss using art as therapy for people living with autism.
Earlier this month Senses Cultural also co-hosted an autism workshop at Shiraz University, the first since we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Shiraz University. The workshops aimed to help families who have children with autism, as well as providing a space for experts to convene and collaborate.
