ArabianBusiness.com reported that the memorandum of understanding between the two companies reflect a shared goal to support autism spectrum children.
The non-profit May Institute is one of the largest providers of special schools and services for children and adults with autism and other special need in the US. The institute will deliver due diligence services to Manazel to explore this project, a statement said.
Manazel’s chairman Mohamed M Al Qubaisi said, “Our strategic alliance with May Institute reflects our constant search for opportunities that lead towards growth momentum and the company’s commitment to its on-going expansion strategy to enter new growth and niche markets. We remains focused on pursuing opportunities that complements its overall business strategy while also fulfilling the UAE's efforts to support individuals with disabilities in order for them to be active members of society.”
Dr Lauren C Solotar, president and CEO of May Institute, added, “We look forward to collaborating with Manazel on this assessment and are pleased to share our expertise with the UAE.
"As the number of individuals diagnosed with autism increases across the globe, the need for effective, research-based interventions is more critical than ever.”
