Solotar, president and CEO of May Institute, aligns with the institutes “strategic goal of expanding our reach to provide innovative ABA services to individuals with autism spectrum disorder across the lifespan”.
“We look forward to collaborating with Manazel on this assessment and are pleased to share our expertise with the UAE,” Solotar added.
