Thought Leadership 

An integral part of the mission of CDC is to be a thought leader in the field of autism in the Middle East.  

  • Our staff, including our Heads of Department, who individually represent the strongest background of education and training, work collaboratively to design treatment programs for our clients. This multidisciplinary approach is one of our key differentiators.
  • Our Early Intervention Program; which is a pioneer program of intense daily therapy in a preschool class setting and incorporating elements of music, PECS, and play, all grounded in ABA; is the first of its kind in Qatar.
  • Our community support, which engages parents and educators, to offer workshops, playgroups, and a hub for children with special needs.

It is our hope to create sustainable change in Qatar and the Middle East utilizing techniques that achieve best outcomes for all children with special needs.
