Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when a mother learns her child’s language. 

Nora Alharbi is a teacher and a mother to four children in Saudi Arabia. Her second child, Fares, is autistic. Fares receives services at Namaee Center, our partner site in Riyadh. 

In this conversation, we discuss: 

  • The level of autism awareness in Saudi Arabia and what services are available for families there
  • How Nora came to accept her son’s autism
  • Fares’ autistic strengths and relationship with his siblings
  • How his communication skills have developed since attending Namaee Center
  • Advice for other parents who may be struggling with accepting their child’s diagnosis
