Include ME UAE
IncludeME UAE aims to become an important platform for UAE parents of children who learn differently and need additional support. IncludeME UAE aims to help local parents whose children face more challenges in their development and/or have learning and attention issues. We desire to empower parents to better understand their children’s issues and relate to their experiences by sharing valuable resources (web sites, articles, talks,videos), information about local centers, schools, workshops, support groups and direct interaction with other parents with similar experiences. With this knowledge, we believe parents can make effective choices that propel their children from simply coping to truly thriving.
