Clearly not a school, Dubai Community Health Center is however a resource for parents of children with special needs - in English and Arabic.

The original name of the centre was the Childcare and Development Centre, and was opened to help provide preventative services in terms of addressing issues relation to children in the family and school setting.

"Bearing in mind that learning difficulties and emotional issues were clouded in mystery and negativity, the environment of the centre was designed to be home-like and child friendly rather than clinical. This was done in order to remove the stigma associated with seeking help for these issues."

The centre's remit has grown significantly since then and now provides services for: Psychiatry, Clinical Psychological Therapies and Assessments, Group Therapy, Educational Psychology and Assessments, General Counseling, Marriage Counseling, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. It's founding mandate to help children with special needs remains core however.

 

If you are the owner or the principal of the school and note any inaccuracies, or would like to update data, you can now open an account with us. You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service. Please help us keep prospective parents up to date with your latest information.
