Intervention includes behavioural models, occupational therapy (to help with activities like dressing, eating and bathing and to improve fine motor, social, and problem-solving skills), sensory integration therapy (to help respond appropriately to sensory information like sights, sounds, touch and smells) and speech therapy (to help improve the child's communication skills).

Parents of autistic children and medical professionals in Oman expressed hope that the day would help make more people aware about the condition and the people affected by it.

During the month, Qatar Airways staff and cabin crew will be visiting Renad Academy, a member of Qatar Foundation, to spend a day with children with autism.

"It is a common misconception that autism is a form of intellectual disability or insanity", said the statement. Qatar Airways continues its successful collaboration with Hamad Medical Cooperation (HMC) for the second consecutive year by hosting a programme of activities throughout the month created to raise awareness of the autism spectrum disorder.
