List of Special needs schools in UAE

 Parents of special needs children, can have excellent facilities in Dubai for education, overall quality of life and a high standard of health. In Dubai, health and education should be privately funded but the choice of facilities may also be limited. The Dubai Government recognizes that even if the special educational needs are supported, the best facilities for children with special needs happen to be privately funded schools.
