Princess Haya Just Opened a Center for Children with Special Needs

Princess Haya bint Hussein, daughter of King Hussein of Jordan and wife of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, just opened the High Hopes Pediatric Therapy Center — a fully integrated facility for children with moderate to complex special needs. The facility was developed by Majid and Lynn Jafar, who also funded the Center.

The main aim of the Center is to provide specialized services for children up to age 13. That includes treating developmental disorders, neuromuscular diagnoses, genetic disorders, abnormal muscle tone, and delayed developmental milestones.

In addition to providing aid in physiotherapy, occupational, speech and language therapy, and feeding, vision and hydrotherapy, High Hopes will work with international organizations to bring in highly-trained therapists who can introduce new techniques to staff in the UAE.

Equipped with a sensory room, a swimming pool, and a “fully inclusive outdoor playground,” the Center is set to be the first of its kind in the region.
