Mind Institute is a brand new, state-of-the-art facility that works with children from birth to 18 years with communication difficulties, fine and gross motor challenges, language delays, hearing difficulties, educational delays, behavior disorders, emotional disorders, sensory integration issues, social skills challenges, and more.Though Qatar has a number of centers that cater to special needs, ...waiting lists are long and some centers are only for Qatari nationals, while others cater to only Arabic speakers.Founder of esteemed Little Academy Nursery in Doha noticed the lack of special needs access in the community, and established Mind Institute as a catalyst for demonstrable change for children and adolescents struggling with special needs. The institute offers holistic, non-medical daily intervention programs as well as after-school programs using evidence-based, subject-centered approaches in English, French, and Arabic, targeting measurable changes in academic and social performance.Actively promoting equality and an open-door policy, Mind Institute firmly believes that every child and adolescent should achieve their maximum social and academic potential. With a multi-disciplinary team of therapists along with 3 languages, the center provides comprehensive therapy and care for all members of the community.Further demonstrating commitment to the community, Mind Institute also launched a permanent outreach program that works with schools in Qatar. Beginning with a consultation, Mind Institute collaborates with schools by offering training workshops for their staff and faculty, screenings, comprehensive assessments, collaborative classroom practice, and more. Mind Institute, by working continuously with children and adolescents of the community, hopes to erase the social stigma around special needs and help children live more functional and enriched lives.
