The National Archives contributes to the national education of autistic children of Abu Dhabi Autism Center through unconventional methods.

In collaboration with Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination, the National Archives organizes a number of programs and events for the children of Abu Dhabi Autism Center (ADAC). The NA is prompted by its adherence to the UAE comprehensive strategy towards people of determination and its interest in offering its services and contributions to the national education of generations to all segments of society and in performing its community role to the fullest as well as supporting and integrating autistic children into society.

Within the framework of its collaboration with Abu Dhabi Autism Center, the National Archives receives, at its headquarters, purposeful visits by autistic children to participate in art and reading workshops and enjoy some educational games. These events and activities are planned under the supervision of specialists to ensure their compatibility with the age group and level of autism of each category of the participants in the art and reading workshops and activities.
The program of each visiting delegation from Abu Dhabi Autism Center includes a visit to Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Hall where children enjoy the atmosphere of the hall contents and photographs especially those of the founding leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan- Papa Zayed in their own words- which show him building and developing the UAE. Next, children move to Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Hall to watch a national 3D documentary film, which adds an unconventional educational dimension to the visit to awaken their hidden powers.
It is worth mentioning that the National Archives offers a special knowledge support to Abu Dhabi Autism Center in Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination. Not only does the National Archives collaborate with Abu Dhabi Autism Center, but it also offers its relevant activities and events to all autism centers and institutes in the UAE. It maintains close relations with Emirates Autism Society.
