We have been working with QAFA
for some time now, particularly over thesummer months when we hosted a number of hugely popular activitiesinitiated by WISH," al-Naimi said.
WISH, in partnership with Qatar Foundation's Community Development, introduced a number of activities, primarily for QAFA, during 2017, to address the growing need for social and sports facilities to be made available to children with autism.
Beyond sports and leisure activities, the agreement also provides an opportunity for WISH and QAFA to collaborate towards the advancement of autism spectrum disorder research in Qatar.
E oportuno salientar que a educacao fisica escolar nao esta incluida no QAFA
, pois se sabe que as atividades realizadas durante as aulas de educacao fisica nao tem como objetivo melhorar o nivel de aptidao fisica, mas sim sensibilizar e orientar sobre a pratica de exercicios fisicos regulares, os quais poderao ser praticados fora da escola.
WISH also recently collaborated with QAFA
to arrange separate swimming sessions for the mothers of autistic children, in line with research by WISH that highlights the importance of building support networks for the families of children with autism.
