This project assessed the availability of resources for families of children with autism in the Rabat region of Morocco. Our sponsor, Autism Speaks, provided their 2016 survey to conduct further family interviews in 2018. Working with a translator, our team interviewed 20 families and four professionals associated with autistic children at three Moroccan non-governmental organizations. Results from these interviews indicate a number of areas for improvement in the treatment of autism in Morocco including: more cultural awareness, better government and home support, and more specialized education and professional training. Our analysis of the results between the 2016 and 2018 interviews illuminated differences in resource availability between rural families and urban families in Morocco.
