Dubai Down Syndrome Centre opens

A new centre for children and adolescents with Down Syndrome has opened in Dubai, offering five to 18-year-olds a safe environment where they can learn more about life, and improve their social skills all while gaining more independence.

Empowering children and adolescents to become active members of the community, Dubai Down Syndrome Centre was inaugurated by HE Hessa Essa Buhumaid, Minister of Community Development, who toured the centre's facilities and was introduced to the educational mechanisms and tools applied to enrich the students' experiences.

The centre's team is comprised of occupational and speech therapists as well as teachers specialising in art, music, drama and physical educational for a holistic approach. Students can enjoy different sports, including aerobics, ball activities, recreation, swimming and horse riding. Plus, they can take part in drama, cooking classes and more.
