The curriculum is based on the principle that each student is an individual and should be given every possible opportunity for education appropriate to their needs and for personal, social, physical and emotional development.
The curriculum seeks to consider each student as a whole, taking into account his/her cultural and life experiences.
It is our intention that each student shall acquire knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and behavior patterns that will increase his/her independence.
How We Work:
The following curriculum explains the way in which Dubai Center for Special Needs works and what we hope to achieve through our education and therapy programs:
Self-Help Skills: From making their own snack to tidying up their surroundings (and everything in between) students are encouraged to become as independent as possible.
Cognitive Development: These skills are nurtured through a range of academic and classroom activities.
Creative Arts: Different forms of creative art programs at DCSN promote self-concept, confidence, creativity, and independent thinking. DCSN currently offers regular art classes, woodworking, pottery making, and music lessons.
Physical Activities: To promote physical fitness and teamwork students participate in gym classes, competitions, swimming, horse riding, sailing, and ice-skating
Educational Field Trips: Students gain valuable knowledge about a variety of topics as well as lessons in social interaction skills through real life experiences.
Music / Play-Acting / Concerts: These activities promote speech and language development, while building students’ confidence. DCSN hosts an annual concert open to the community to showcase our students’ many talents.
