Once a month, parents of differently abled children gather to share ideas and offer support at the Sensory Souq Monday Meet-ups. Meetings include guest speakers—often parents who have a great story to share or practitioners who go the extra mile. Topics planned for the coming year include mindfulness, complementary medicine, and an inspiring Qatari mom making a difference. www.sensorysouk.com
