Center for autism opened in Riyadh

RIYADH: The first research and treatment center for autism in the Middle East was opened at King Khaled University Hospital of King Saud University (KSU) here on Tuesday.

Abdullah Al-Othman, president of the university, emphasized KSU’s plans to carry out more similar projects for the welfare of society.

“We want KSU to be an institution that participates in the Kingdom’s overall development. We don’t want to be just an institution that produces graduates,” he said.

The opening ceremony was attended by Prince Turki bin Saud, deputy director of research centers at King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology.
