Khaled is an affectionate, sweet and smart 5-year-old who loves to read and learn new things. Khaled attends a mainstream school and his academic abilities are very advanced for his age.

The main focus will be to help Khaled to improve his speech, develop his self-help, independence and social / emotional skills.
