In celebration of the globally recognized Autism Awareness month of April, the NYU Abu Dhabi Office of Community Outreach and student group Cinema Paradiso invite you to a public screening of the documentary As One: Autism Project.
This heartwarming documentary traces the special journey of the children, parents, and teachers involved in a unique theatrical and musical program in the UAE for children on the autism spectrum. We can think of no better way to shine a light on autism than to celebrate these ten young, bright stars.
The film will be followed by a discussion panel with faculty and practitioners from the community.
Seats for the screening are limited. Please register here if you are interested in attending.
