THE STAFF HAS MADE MY SON BLOSSOM

“My son has learnt a tremendous amount of skills in only two months at Al-Noor center, he was mostly non verbal and extremely introverted, the staff has made my son blossom into a curious, adventurous young boy, he has learnt colors, counting, and a huge amount of social skills. The premises are always extremely well kept, the staff is absolutely hands on and fully dedicated to the the students. They form immediate individual bonds with the children. I would recommend AL-NOOR to any parent with a child diagnosed with ASD.”

I think my child may be Autistic, how do I know?

Autism can be detected form 18 months of age and is defined by a certain set of behaviours and is a “spectrum condition” that affects people differently and to varying degrees.

Early detection helps a person receive the support and services they need, which can lead to an improved quality of life.

Signs to look for:

  • Repetition in language or movement – such as repeating the same word or sounds, hand flopping or any repeated movement.
  • Atypical non-verbal communication, including eye contact and giving few facial expressions.
  • Prefers solitary or parallel play rather than engaging in associative or cooperative play with other children.
  • Extremely distressed by changes including new foods.
  • Strong, persistent interest in a specific topic, part of a toy or item.
