Abdo was enrolled in the "Back to the Future” education program during the second phase of the program (BTF2), and from the moment he entered into the program he has been immediately followed-up by a speech, language and psychomotor therapist.

He moved together with his family from Siria to Lebanon six years ago, when he was just one year old, and from this age he began to show some difficulties
Motor skills, attention, mental flexibility, memory, delay in oral language development, and cognitive skills: these were its weaknesses.

After some years, Abdo is still participating in the activities carried out by Back To The Future and is now continuing through the third phase (BTF 3).
