Enabling Environment

  • The Enabling Environment: The rights of persons with disabilities are to be promoted and respected in accordance with ratified UN Conventions. Thus far, people with Autism are unable to enjoy their rights to the fullest extent possible, as prescribed to them by law and under the Constitution. Jordanian legislation and national policies and programs need to mainstream their needs with a view to codifying and enforcing a rights-based approach in the provision and delivery of services. To this effect, Autism MENA sets out to ensure that local legislation take into consideration the legal requirements of persons with Autism and that local authorities are enforcing them and society is adhering to them.
