We believe we must accommodate all learners, by removing barriers that restrict the achievement and educational experience of students with Special Needs. Our policy is inclusive and we adhere to the ‘Social model’ of disability found in the Dubai School Inspection supplement. Ittihad Private School is committed to implementing systematic procedures that will remove any obstacle that may impose educational and social exclusion for any student. We will focus our efforts on enhancing student achievement, ensuring the acquisition of 21st century skills, and improving post-secondary outcomes so students will be prepared to contribute to a global society. 

Targeted areas for services and supports include supplementary instructional materials, curriculum access and common core alignment, family engagement, least restrictive environment, positive behavior supports, and transition. Additional services include ensuring compliance with the UAE Special Education provisions, collecting and analyzing data on educational services and outcomes, providing guidance and initiating collaborative efforts between all staff, parents, and stakeholders.
