About ARCL

A Public Initiative

Autism Resource Centre Lahore is established a non-profit organisation affiliated with Autism Society of Pakistan (“ASP”), which act as a national umbrella organization with a focused mandate for advocacy, fund raising, training, research, and for generally creating awareness about Autism in Pakistan.

Autism Society of Pakistan has successfully set up the Autism Resource Centre in Rawalpindi, which has recently completed five fruitful years. ASP aims to replicate such centres all over Pakistan, and hopefully establish a National Autism Centre.

ARC Lahore is the second of such centres. A dedicated group of people (primarily affected parents) in Pakistan and abroad have formed a focus group to take this public initiative forward.

Testimonials

My son was diagnosed as a CP child at the age of 1 year. Initially I got his therapies from different centres. At the age of 4-5 Years, in addition to the therapies I felt a need for basic schooling for my son, so I searched for some inclusive schools. I came to know about ARCL. My son has been attending ARCL since he was 5 years old. He is now 7.9 years old. The efforts and energy of the ARCL team is outstanding. Now my son is about to join a regular school. Much credit goes to the team of ARCL.

“Autism does not come with a manual. It comes with a patient Family and competent therapists who never give up”. Dr Irfan Saleem, Sohar University Oman.
My son Usman Bin Irfan was diagnosed with ASD in 2010. He is now ten years old. We joined ARCL in 2017 due to the generous financial support by ARCL Lahore – a fantastic team under the patronage of Dr Faraz Bhatti. I wish Team ARCL all the success.

My son was diagnosed with ASD at the age of 3. After a few months of struggle, I came to know about ARCL. My son has attended ARCL since he was 3.5 years old and he is now 6 years old. The attitude and energy of the ARCL team is amazing. They have left no stone unturned towards the betterment of kids. My son joined a normal school along with a shadow teacher after 1 year of therapy. He is attending both normal school and ARCL now. Much credit goes to the team of ARCL. They taught us to live with Autism and celebrate it. Hats off to you. I wish ARCL all the success.
