Director’s Message

It is with great pleasure and heartfelt enthusiasm that I welcome you to our website. I hope that the website gives you an overview of the Centre, a glimpse of services we provide in alignment with the vision and mission of the Centre.

Al Noor opened its doors to serve people with disabilities more than 4 decades ago. At a time, when there was an acute need to have a place of learning and training for people with disabilities and almost none existed. There weren’t too many centres like ours then, so Al Noor became a guiding light to the community. And I can proudly say, that even today, Al Noor continues to fulfil that role. Our continual growth, combined with our belief in the benefits of neurodiversity, and guidance from policies and legislations like UNCRPD, the federal law 29 and the Dubai Disability Strategy 2020, we have set goals for ourselves to have a wider impactful influence in the community. We at Al Noor work on identifying barriers that prevent access and full participation for our students and find ways to eliminate these barriers. Overcoming barriers through dynamic action and determination, we have broadened the scope of service provision by adopting the latest technologies and methodologies to strive for inclusion for our students.

At Al Noor, we believe in the transformative power of education. We strive to create an environment where students can not only acquire knowledge and skills but also discover their strengths, overcome challenges, and ultimately achieve their goals. We recognize that each student is unique, with their own talents and aspirations, and it is our unwavering commitment to nurturing their individual growth that sets us apart.

Our mission goes beyond academic excellence; it extends to making a profound impact on the lives of our students and their families. We understand the immense responsibility we bear in shaping the future of these young minds, and we approach it with the utmost care, compassion, and dedication. We take pride in witnessing their growth, witnessing their transformation into confident, compassionate, and responsible individuals who are poised to make a positive difference in the world.

None of this would be possible without the collaborative partnerships we have cultivated over the years. We recognize that education is a collective effort, and we are grateful for the support and trust that our community, parents, staff, and stakeholders have placed in us. Together, we form a strong network that enables us to provide the best possible opportunities and experiences for our students.

As you explore our new website, I hope you will be inspired by the stories of success, resilience, and achievement that are woven into the fabric of Al Noor. Our students are the heart and soul of our institution, and their journeys are a testament to our unwavering commitment to their growth and development.

I invite you to join us on this remarkable journey of discovery, empowerment, and impact. Together, let us continue to foster a nurturing environment where every student can thrive, where dreams are realized, and where the light of knowledge shines brightly.
