Autism Smiles UAE

We were very excited to launch Autism Smiles UAE last month! It’s a comedy club for youth on the spectrum though it is open to children with other special needs. Students learned an array of circus skills, musical comedy, joke telling, physical comedy routines, laughter yoga, magic and more.

The program is completely free and lead by Mina Liccione and Ali Al Sayed along with assistant teachers and volunteers to ensure personal attention for each student. The 5 week workshop ended with a fun graduation ceremony and a relaxed “informance” where the students got to show off some of their new skills for their families.

If you’d like to sign your son/daughter up for the next round beginning Mid-May please email us at If you have a talent you’d like to share with these wonderful kids, do let us know and we’d be happy to have you as a guest artist.

Special thanks to Ali, Gabi, Abel, Ayesha, Uditi and guest artists Rachel, Preba, Cari for volunteering your time, energy and passion. The kids really loved it!!

Huge thanks to Barakat – Fresh and Easy for their endless support. They have sponsored fresh fruit juices and salads for every event we’ve organized for over two years now. We adore you!

Here are a few wonderful memories….
