Admission to Dubai Center for Special Needs may be obtained through
referral by a pediatrician, school, or private enrollment. The first
step is for parents to obtain and complete an admission form (admission form) available online or from DCSN Reception (location map).
The completed application along with required documentation (as stated on application form) should be returned to DCSN Reception. The student will then be placed on a waiting list and parents will be contacted to arrange an initial assessment with the Director.
All students seeking admission to DCSN must be evaluated and tested before admission will be permitted. The purpose of this evaluation is to:
Assess the child's developmental level in cognitive, speech and language skills and physical development..
Place the child in an appropriate classroom.
Create an Individual Education Plan (IEP) with input from DCSN’s multi-disciplinary team..
Offer the best educational and therapy program for the developmental age of the student.
Implement the best possible program as soon as possible.
