Emirates Autism Center (EAC) is a private center specialized in autism spectrum conditions, based in the capital of UAE, Abu Dhabi. Its doors officially opened during the 1st Annual Autism Week under the patronage of HH Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan on the 2nd of April, 2008.
The center’s founder and managing director is Amal Sabry, winner of the Emirates Woman of The Year Humanitarian Award 2016 and mother to Amr Sharaan, the 1st autistic child in the UAE to be part of a formal inclusion program in a mainstream school (2001) and graduate high school (2012).
The center’s doors are open year-round with state-of-the-art classrooms specifically designed to meet the sensory and environmental needs of its students.
For 14 years in a row, Emirates Autism Center has joined forces with UAE CSR leaders to bring about an annual autism campaign during April (Global Autism Month). This year, we transition from autism awareness to autism acceptance, appreciation and empowerment.
Our campaign is under the generous long-term patronage of HH UAE Minister of Tolerance and Co-existence, in co-organization with the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce, and in partnership with a number of UAE CSR leaders from a range of industries. Join us on April 27-28, 2021!
