Dubai Autism Centre’s Movement Therapy Programme receives 10 tricycles from Averda

United Arab Emirates: Monday, December 03 - 2012 @ 14:37

The tricycles will play a pivotal role in the Movement Therapy Programme, which allows children to further develop their motor skills, coordination and balance.

The 44 students at the DAC take part in 10 30-minute Movement Therapy sessions every day with the Centre’s two movement therapists. A typical session could include walking, jumping, running, playing sports or cycling.

“Movement Therapy helps our children with muscle motion, and is therefore essential in terms of physical development and mental stimulation. Tricycles specifically help to build muscular endurance in the lower body, and we are very grateful to Averda for this generous donation,” said Hiba Qutub, Head OT & Creative Unit at DAC.

“Caring for our community is not simply an environmental matter for Averda. We want to give back in the most meaningful ways possible, to help towards a better future for children in the communities we serve. Supporting DAC and donating towards its Movement Therapy Programme is a pleasure, and we look forward to touching the lives of more community members in the future,” said John Irvine, Managing Director, Averda Dubai.

He added, “It is very fulfilling to know that it is possible to make a difference with gestures of any size. We would like to encourage other UAE residents to give back to the community, in whatever way they can.”

Averda believes in supporting the communities in which it works. In addition to providing environmental services, Averda participates in several schemes to help local initiatives to care for – and safeguard – the environment, our future, and the future of our children.
