Since 2006, HOPE Qatar has played a leading and pioneering role in enhancing opportunities and quality of education for children with special needs.

‘Children with special needs’ is a very broad term. It could include children with physical and intellectual challenges, but also includes children who learn and develop at their own pace. HOPE Qatar offers a range of programs to address the unique needs of these children and youth in Qatar. It ensures that along with functional academics, the social, emotional, and physical skills of the child is enhanced.

All our classes are ICT enabled and HOPE uses computer based technology and learning to the fullest to help develop a generation of children who tech savvy as well and can gain from the wealth of resources available at their fingertips. Yoga and Karate are built into our academic program in the morning batch to enable further emotional and physical development and well-being.

Early Intervention (3 – 6 years)

Our Early Intervention Class is probably the bubbliest group with lots of fun activities that ensure children whose age appropriate development is lacking are given all opportunities to catch up. Our multi-national and multi-disciplinary team works extensively with this group of students to help them achieve full potential. Extensive Speech, Behavior, and Occupational Therapy intervention is provided for students if needed.

Functional Academics (7 – 25 years)

HOPE Qatar’s Functional Academics program enables a structured environment where children can learn at their own pace and eventually complete their 10th or 12th grades through open schooling curriculum. Segregated into two batches (Intermediate and Senior classes - based on the intellectual age and development), our students have demonstrated high level of social and emotional skills and academic growth. A near school environment gives them this opportunity under the careful watch of highly qualified multinational team of teachers. Subjects including English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Computer Science, and Value Education are covered. Annual Days, Sports Days, Science Exhibitions, Field Trips, Projects and homework, and ICT based activities help sharpen overall development and brings out the best in each child.

Supplementary Academic Support (Different batches between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm)

HOPE Qatar believes that out-of-school students who are unable to attend regular schooling due to various reasons should not be denied opportunity to learn. Educating a child is a collective responsibility. In support of the programs initiated by the Wise Leadership of the State of Qatar, HOPE Qatar provides special support to students who are out-of-school, and to students who opted for home schooling. We work with the parents of these children to develop their educational goals and plans and provide academic and therapeutic interventions as appropriate aimed at such students graduating and moving on to higher education at appropriate times. Such students are also guided to appear for open schooling exams and provided career guidance.

HOPE Qatar has also successfully graduated a batch of its children with special needs who completed their Diplomas in Computer Applications in collaboration with a leading IT Training Institution in Qatar.

Early Drop and Late Pick up (7:30 am to 4:30 pm)

We recognize the need for some of the parents of our students to drop off their children a little early and get to work, and then pick them up at the end of their working hours. Though we do not encourage the parents to ‘park’ their children at HOPE, we offer to keep the children engaged in a meaningful manner between our normal working hours from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm on a case by case basis at an additional cost.
