The 3rd Annual International Forum, hosted by the Shafallah Center for Children with Special Needs, will bring together advocates, family members, scholars, and practitioners from a variety of perspectives to explore the theme of Sport and Ability. Shafallah Center's 3rd Annual International Forum will explore how sport, recreation and cultural activities promote social inclusion, acceptance, skill acquisition and friendships. The Forum will explore the current efforts of these programs and future directions for how sport and the promotion of ability can be expanded to reach all members of our globally aware society. The sky is the limit in terms of creativity so please submit ideas.

The Forum will feature keynote addresses by global leaders, roundtable discussions, symposia, paper presentations, and exhibits. We welcome the submission of afore mentioned presentations and have included more information in the following pages.

Participation in the Forum is complimentary and by invitation only (including airfare, meals, and accommodation). We hope that you will join us this April in Doha and participate in international dialogue among your peers. Please visit the Shafallah Center website (www.shafallah.org.qa).
