Testimonials from Parents…
- Talita Prinsloo (Ethan’s mom)
We, as parents of a beautiful down syndrome boy, had concerns to send him to a special need school. We were worried that our son would not develop as he should in society, yet we took the leap and enrolled him in DCSN.
This was surely one of the best decisions we could have made for Ethan. The small groups and one on one interaction was exactly what he needed to make his smile grow into sunshine! He made friends and found a place with positive environment that helped him gain confidence. From amazing stage productions, sport events to horse riding therapy, Speech and OT, just to mention a few, he just loves it all! We are proud parents that see a very big difference in our son. His life skills increased immensely. DCSN goes all the way to bring the best out of every individual person and makes them feel important and accepted.
- Binu Innesent
I am Mrs Binu Innesent, mother of 16-year-old Sonia Innesent a student of DCSN since the past nine years. My daughter had considerable physical, mental and behavioural challenges when she first joined the centre. However, with time, proper training and therapies provided by the DCSN professionals, she has shown immense improvement. In short, DCSN can be described as a team of dedicated professionals under great leadership in a friendly and welcoming environment. The central positive aspect of DCSN is transparency in the working of the system. Not only do the students receive tailored academic and therapeutic training, but they are also trained to live comfortably and independently in society. Also, the centre welcomes parent’s participation and encourages inputs for improvement. Despite the distressful conditions of the pandemic, the centre ensures that all the students receive regular online classes and therapy sessions. We are grateful to all the staff and management of DCSN. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank for all the support DCSN has extended to us.
Thank you for time and patience.

Dubai Centre For Special needs has always blew us away with their amazing performance at taking care of our children. The level of education is actually outstanding. The principle and her team have always been so supportive and caring. With the current situation (Covid-19), I am so much amazed with the outcome of the centre. Our kids are still getting the education and the support as always. I can’t thank them enough for their amazing hard work.

As we are approaching the end of 2019-2020 academic year, I would like to express my sincere thanks to you especially and the DCSN team for all the efforts placed to give the DCSN angels the best you can during this surreal and extremely challenging times!
Despite the sudden change and the new tools for all, I saw you and the team trying each possible way to deliver the best you can to the kids. I appreciate the efforts you and the team are placing to offset the gaps in the remote education process to thebestyoucan. Your keen push to give more in the group sessions, offering 1:1 sessions and sharing educational materials gave me a big boost of energy to engage in the education process in a way I’ve never thought possible 3 months back…
Also please pass my thanks to the other 2 stars (Gope and Aurora)? Hope September comes and things are back to normal.

The Dubai Center for Special Needs (DCSN) aims to foster the best development in every single student and is able to successfully tailor its attention to the individual by working in small groups. We’ve always been very positive about the center’s range of professional staff and the fantastic facilities, a green oasis of peace and tranquility in the midst of a bustling city. We’ve been particularly impressed by the school and staff’s ability to adapt and quickly implement a distance learning system at the start of the 2020 pandemic. It has provided an opportunity for parents and teachers to work more closely together on their child’s education and development and we think it’s worked remarkably well.
Our son Martin has been a student of DCSN since 2013.
