UAE Support for Autistic Children

Dubai aims to become a leading centre for the education and treatment of people with autism. The idea is to integrate children with autism into the community through holistic educational methodologies and therapeutic interventions. This was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE.  Abu Dhabi is training educators to work effectively with children on the autism spectrum.  The training will help provide more inclusive education opportunities within private and charter schools. The UAE Ministry of Community Development estimates 12 per cent of all People of Determination in the UAE are on the autism spectrum, with boys four times more likely to be on it than girls. As people on the spectrum often demonstrate average or above average mental capabilities, a number of them are enrolled in UAE schools.
