ABOUT Arthur’s Dream Autism Trust

Arthur’s Dream Autism Trust (ADAT FOUNDATION) exists to provide solutions for families of autistic children and adults in Kenya, Sierra Leone and Liberia and with the aim of extending services Africa-wide. Our purpose is to aide parents in getting a timely diagnosis for their autistic children, connect with the right schools and establish a support mechanism for parents of children diagnosed with autism.

The inspiration behind the Foundation are the issues faced by Arthur, a 12-year-old autistic Kenyan boy.

The Foundation seeks to provide inclusive classrooms in Public schools for autistic learners; provide parents of these learners with training on autism so as to grow their knowledge on the diagnosis and empower them to cope better with their children’s disability; and to create an avenue through which children with autism can have future careers and sources of income.

Our agenda is built on the fact that there is substantial evidence that regardless of the severity of the child’s symptoms early intervention can alleviate the severity of some behavior. These include ASD-specific education plans and environments; generalizing new skills; functional communication approaches to challenging behaviour; and support during key transition times such as from preschool classrooms.

ADAT Foundation’s leadership believes that autistic children and adults are the best guides for their families in determining what interventions are best for them.
