Orange Foundation continues supporting children with autism

Today Orange Foundation and "Arabkir" United Children's Charity Foundation have announced the scope of the "Let's Help Autistic Children" project for the year 2014. Launched in 2010, the project aims at improving early detection of autism in Armenia, supporting autistic children and their parents in all related issues, as well as implementing modern tools for autism diagnostic and treatment.

An important part of the "Let's Help Autistic Children" project is supporting children diagnosed with autism to integrate in the society providing them with opportunities for vocational education. Last year for the first time vocational education of an autistic child was organized in the French-Armenian Vocational Educational Center in Yerevan, supported also by the Embassy of France in the Republic of Armenia.  

"This is already the 4th year of our cooperation with "Arabkir" United Children's Charity Foundation.  One of the most important objectives of this partnership is to create the necessary environment for autistic children, which will  contribute to the full integration of these kids in the society, will help their parents, will as well provide the professional staff with more innovative tools for autism diagnostic and treatment. This partnership will also contribute to the development and education of the children diagnosed with autism," said Francis Gelibter, Chairman of the Board of Orange Armenia Foundation.

As set traditionally, this year the project will as well finance a 14 day trip of 16 children diagnosed with autism and other communication disorders accompanied by their parents and caretakers to a special recreational Summer Camp in Aparan.
