Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to avail the ample opportunity to introduce myself and my organization. The Studies Centre for Handicapped Research (SCHR) in Syria, Salamieh. We together with my team of volunteers and specialized staff endeavor and strive to improve and upgrade the living conditions and standards of all handicapped people in Syria.

Our strategy is to implement specialized computer programs and models to help those with special needs, such as those affected by Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and other neurological conditions. We have also implemented specialized and targeted courses that aim to promote the knowledge base of individuals with special needs to help them be able to work independently in Syrian society.

We very much appreciate your kind to participation in our research, study and handicaps development programs to help increasing our knowledge and ability to improve the conditions of all people with special needs. We aim, through this, to achieve beneficial programs, courses and computer models.

Looking  forward to hearing from you sharing our ideas and experiences. 

Please be kind enough, contact me at your earliest convenient.

Sincerely Yours,

1993: Designing  new crocuses for hearing disability to use ICT by new sign language .
1997-1999: The Blind and visually impaired
We conducted a thorough study and programs through which we can enable this group to use the computer without recourse to such traditional ways,such as the Braille Method. We started by using sound utterances and relating them with all the options and the commands of the application of office programs and operating system. This method will enable the blind to say the commands verbally through microphone so that they can carry out the program options directly. Then the center showed interest in studying speech recognition through alphabetical characters without depending upon dictionaries which were used by other international companies. Furthermore, we analyzed the characters morphologically and we studied distinction charts in order to reach a final and only solution, that is, the use of sound card as a basis for work. This card should be programmed and prepared by specialist technicians. These studies are still underway until we arrive at the desired results.

2000-2005: New Projects for Mental Retardation
The  (SCHR- CAI) Institute  for special needs with learning disability studies has analyzed the cases and the extents of mental paralysis for every child. So I created  special programs to train them through developing their mental skills and concentrating on the investigation of the factors affecting them such as the loss of concentration, directions and color distinction. The programs and courses aim mainly at  reducing the gap between the mental age and the real age for every child, and to develop his/her mental level so that he/she can have the ability to act and interact with people with great confidence.
For the reasons I mentioned above, I conducted five researches and studies on the local and international levels, which can be summed up as follows:
�Teaching Mentally Handicapped ( Special Needs Education)
Book : 200 pages size 17�21 cm
CD-ROM :1 CD capacity 600 M.Byte
50 pages of records and files for learning disability children, that  include tables  with program for analysis evaluation level.
Preliminary training : 7 Groups , 900 Pages include all picture such as, animals , foods , relations , arithmetic........
The program studies improving the memory of mentally handicapped by more 1000 questions and prompting, shaping, intelligence quotient (IQ)
The program is supported with sound effects.
This new program is at the local and international Arabic levels ,
This program is used in many handicapped institutes. It has a curriculum for 2 years.
�Programming "Teaching Montessori at home"
CD-ROM :1 CD capacity 500 M.Byte
Developing the Mentally Handicapped in their real living, especially at home.
The program support with sound effects.
�Program for the Evaluation and Treatment of Cerebral Palsy
This programs includes records for CPC children and Physically treatment planning , studies , IQ,
capacity of program 25 M.Byte
�A study of the deaf - mute:
Our Institute receives children of various ages and levels and trains them on how to use the computer. We have initiated a new sign language for symbols. The terms and the hand movements or gestures are designed for communicating between the instructor and the mute or deaf trainees.
Through this sign language the trainees will carry out the commands for software applications. This experiment was so greatly successful that our center attracted more children from other regions who sought our new methodological approach..
