One of our blog visitors sent us photos for the newly constructed “Kuwait Center for Autism” located at west Mishref area. The building looks modern with such a nice facade, and was opened under the patronage of H.H Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah last month.

Autism  is considered one of the most complex developmental disabilities, which was and still puzzling scientists to know its causes and how to deal with it, and its great to see that Kuwaiti government has developed a specialized center for this disorder to help numerous families.

Also remember that Autism Day is on 2nd of April.

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    My name is Michial A. Templeton and I am requesting information on how to apply for a teaching position at the Kuwait Center for Autism.

    I have earned two masters degrees in education (M.Ed Special Education with emphasis on Autism from University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS 66045 and M.Ed. with emphasis in Literacy Studies, from Rockhurst University, Kansas City, MO 64110). I currently hold teaching certifications in Maryland and Texas. Texas I began my career in education teaching English and Math to special needs high school students and have experience teaching a variety of subjects at both elementary thru secondary academic levels. I have served as a Remedial Reading teacher (elementary and secondary), Business/Computer department head; a school funds custodian, published school newspapers, Behavior Modification Specialist, Autism Consultant, and developed individualizes education programs to meet a variety of special student needs. I have also earned my TEFL Diploma.

    I am currently working at Manarat School for Special Needs in Salmiya, Kuwait as a teacher with extra duties as Chairman of the Discipline Committee, Chairman of the CIS Social Studies Committee and member of the school CIS Team.

    I have been trained to identify reading issues and develop interventions to overcome them. I have knowledge of the primary learning styles (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic) with the experience, education, and personal insight to develop personalized programs to meet the education needs of individual students. In addition, I understand how to use available media to maximize awareness of educational opportunities for students.

    A quotation I often heard growing up lends itself to my approach to academic excellence: “Nothing is impossible if you are willing to work.” This applies to my approach to teaching and working with my colleagues.

    I recognize the diversity among students and try to instill the belief “Nothing is impossible if you are willing to work” by example. I teach students the importance of education and it does not matter how fast you learn, as long as you learn. True success is the ability to overcome obstacles. I encourage students to believe in themselves by creating opportunities for them to achieve success and working with them to discover their potential is only limited by what they believe. Most important I make them aware of the responsibility they have to themselves. Only they have the power to control their actions, what they do now determines which doors of opportunities will open in the future.

    Over the years, I have continually refined my teaching philosophy based on personal experience, collaboration with staff members, parent communications and direct student feedback. My current philosophy is “The key to good teaching is to create exposure to knowledge, provide information for processing, and allow time for learning. Always keep the student focused on their potential, remind them of accomplishments, and stress the importance of allowing time to achieve continued success.

    I believe that everyone has the ability to learn provided the learning material is targeted at the appropriate level and presented at the appropriate rate for students understanding of the concept. To me education is the art of making potential students aware of information and skills that could influence individual perceptions of self, community, and the world. The teacher then acts as a facilitator to motivate students by assisting in discovering links between the assignment and their lives; lead student discussions to gain additional insight, and answering/asking questions to enhance comprehension of materials. It is not enough just to learn a concept or ideas; a teacher should be ready to help students apply what they learn in the real world to add value to the lesson.

    I recognize education as a constantly changing field and continue my efforts to keep pace with changes in education to enhance the learning environment of my students. I am continually looking for new methods to improve my, personal knowledge, instructional skills, and student rapport.

    I am intrinsically motivated and enthusiastic with varied work experiences providing me the necessary skills to meet requirements for a variety of positions. My training have taught me to adapt available resources to achieve maximum success and to use current successes as requirements justification to for additional resources.

    To me life is a continual learning experience, this is the example I set for my students. If given the opportunity I could become a valued member of your staff.

    I can be contacted by e-mail at or telephonically at +49-620-1878-7890 or +49-151-5316-1671 (Germany). I can also be reached by telephonically at +965-6709-2444 (Kuwait)

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Michial A. Templeton, M.Ed.

  22. Dear sir,
    We are a Small Autistic School in Bangladesh. The Awareness on Autism is just building in our country for a few years. As you know Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries. With more than 164 million individuals (2010) in a country the resulting population pressures are huge. If you are living in Bangladesh, you are likely to be poor and very vulnerable to natural disasters. some 45 percent of the population is under the age of 15. Bangladesh ranks 146 out of 187 countries on the United Nations Development Programme’s 2011 human development index.( references:

    In these circumstances We are a group of friends have opened an Autistic School named Advanced School For Special Children on ouw own effort & funding. Our primary objective is to make people aware of AUTISM, building up social consciousness, provide best possible facilities to the Autistic Children s & MAke infrastructural development throughout the country.

    Currently we can afford giving therapy to 10-20 students for a minimum amount of money. But its becoming a great difficulties to maintain such huge expenses like Office rent,utility fees, teachers payment, employee payment & other cost. Still we are maintaining the expenditures with our minimum resources.

    We would like to know whether there is an opportunity or not to apply for a grant from your institution regarding autism & other socio/human development project. We invite you to participate & work with us with anything grant or whatever you recommend.

    Looking forward hearing from you sir.
