Al Noor

 Al Noor Rehabilitation & Welfare Association for People of Determination is a public welfare association working towards the cause of People of Determination, under the auspices of Community Development Authority in Dubai. Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities, the training department under the parent association, is a non-profit organization established in 1981. Al Noor has been providing high quality of professional training to the Determined Ones community in Dubai for over 40 years. Starting with only 8 children the Centre has since expanded to facilitate and enrich the lives of up to 200 children and young people from 28 different nationalities who have various physical and cognitive challenges such as Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Autism. The new all-purpose facility from which Al Noor now operates opened its doors in April 2007 and was generously donated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E. and Ruler of Dubai.

Al Noor follows a holistic programme addressing all domains of development through a Trans disciplinary assessment and intervention approach, all delivered at an ISO certified standard. In addition to teaching, the level of development is enhanced with Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Applied Behavior therapy (ABA), Psychological services, Vocational Training, Sports, Swimming and Music. Al Noor also prides itself on an exceptionally effective Work Placement unit that trains its students with a capability for open employment, integrating them into mainstream society post education.

The Centre runs a Parent and Child Training programme (PACT), an intensive, participative parent empowerment programme. Meant for parents of children with autism, this programme is implemented following the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. It provides hands-on learning opportunities and is based on the belief that parents are in the best position to help their children to communicate and interact more successfully.
Al Noor also takes pride in a dedicated Assistive Technology team & Advanced Seating Clinic that assesses, identifies and applies appropriate technology to help students with access difficulties overcome their physical and cognitive challenges.

A particular star of the Al Noor’s achievements is the Center’s very own Branded Outlet – Smiles ‘n’ Stuff –showcasing handcrafted products by Al Noor Students, which helps to raise awareness for the training Centre. The goal of Al Noor’s Vocational Training unit is to make young adults skilled and productive members of the community, and training is offered in Wood Design Technology, Printing Technology, Fashion Technology and Bakery units.
