Description:

Step by Step Centre provides specialised teaching in a school setting and individual therapy sessions in the afternoons for children aged 2 to 18 who have special educational needs. Our aim is to provide a highly specialised approach to meet each child’s individual and specific needs within the social setting of a school.

Some of the teaching methods and therapy programs we use to improve children’s skills are, Applied Behavioural Analysis Therapy (ABA), Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, behaviour intervention plans and assistive technology. To cater for the needs of Arabic community, this year we also began Arabic classes as well.

At our Centre, we have an ongoing commitment to working with children with a wide range of special education needs, creating personalized learning programmes that meet the needs of individual children, and ensuring that children’s needs are met promptly and effectively.

We provide an educational environment in which every child is valued and encouraged to develop learning together. It is our vision to provide a calm and caring environment that encourages success and achievement with learning.

The session times can be arranged with parents (anytime from 13:00 pm to 19:00 pm). Alternatively. Parents are offered therapy package programmes in the areas of Occupational therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Behaviour Therapy, ABA and Academic Support sessions.

School Security and Child Safeguarding

We have policies and procedures in place to ensure children are kept safe and happy, and to promote a safe environment.

All of our staff are trained in the principles of protecting our children from harm and thirteen of them are CPR and AED trained and licensed by Al Sidra Hospital. Our centre also has CCTV cameras installed in all classrooms to keep our children, staff and visitors safe.
