On behalf of Prince Bandar bin Abdul Aziz, founder of the King Salman Center for Disability Research (KSCDR), Riyadh Gov. Prince Faisal bin Bandar attended the General Assembly’s 9th meeting and the 12th meeting of the center’s founders.

He said that King Salman’s support boosted the state strategy of empowerment and integration of people with disabilities. The Kingdom’s efforts on the issue of disability made it an international pioneer, he said.

“The center is aware of the importance of the advanced scientific research as a parallel activity of the educational and rehabilitation services it provides,” he said. 

Prince Sultan praised the adoption of the national program for learning disabilities by the center in cooperation with the Education Ministry, noting that the program has helped qualify 20,000 teachers and benefit more than 500,000 male and female students, along with the hundreds of sessions the center has organized to help tens of thousands of citizens and residents.

Prince Sultan stressed the center’s effective partnerships with information, scientific, educational and medical institutions in Saudi Arabia, including the ministries of health, education, defense, interior, labor and social development, national guard, the King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology and universities.

“We have intensified our efforts to conduct scientific research, along with the center’s practical work and pioneering future researches with the world’s best partners, to serve people with disabilities.”
