Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder affecting 1 in 85 children born today. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes and cancer combined. Autism is the fastest growing serious developmental disability across the world. There is no medical detection or cure for autism.
Commenting at the event, Dusit Thani Dubai’s General Manager, Prateek Kumar, noted: “It’s important for us to support great causes like this. We are very proud to be a part of such a great event to not only raise funds for Autism but also the overall awareness of the condition.”
