Egypt’s Minister of Social Solidarity Ghada Wali will attend a celebration organized by the Egyptian Association for the Advancement of Persons with Disabilities and Autism at the headquarter of the Ministry of Social Solidarity on World Autism Awareness Day on Tuesday.
The celebration, titled “Use of assistive techniques to activate the participation of people with Autism”, will make its debut by launching the first application for alternative speech communication for people who experience autism.
Meanwhile, Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority Mohab Mamesh said that the Authority switched on blue lights in several old and new authority buildings to recognize World Autism Awareness Day.
