Autism is Real, so is its Cost

AUTISM CENTER/

ABOUT THE AUTISM PROJECT

The present SESOBEL building, which includes the autism centre, can no longer accommodate our growing needs. The building's maximum capacity limit has been reached. The classrooms are often too small and non-functional: lack space for naps, inadequate soundproofing system, and no easy access for the children and youth with limited mobility. The younger children have their meals in the classrooms, they have no garden or playground that would contribute to their well-being and development.

 

Due to this lack of space, there is an inability to conduct new programs, even though new needs have emerged. These needs pertain especially to the youth with autism, for whom it is important to provide assistance with their transition to adult life.

 

A completely furnished living space, with private bedrooms and bathrooms, is needed to receive them, on a rotation basis, in the afternoons and during the night in an adapted and secured environment. It is also necessary to have a day center that would receive youth with autism over the age of 20, who do not have the capabilities to work in sheltered workshops.

Such facilities are currently missing in the country. Indeed, nothing is planned in Lebanon to receive youth with autism over the age of 20.

 

SESOBEL is currently in the process of building the new center on an adjacent piece of land.
