Who We Are


Our work is situated in the Senegalese capital of Dakar, the largest urban area in the country. Currently, there are no other existing treatment programs exclusively tailored for children with autism in Senegal, though many programs and organizations do exist for children with special needs. Among autism-specific projects, the newly-founded Senegal Autism Network is currently running parent support meetings, activities for children, and media outreach and awareness. CHIP International, an American nonprofit in the cause for autism, is focusing on awareness projects as well. Our ABA program is the first of its kind in this locale.
