No, Wonderful Minds is a session-based center, specialized in providing individualized assessments and therapy sessions for People of Determination and Individuals with difficulties in the age range of 0-20 years. We do not operate as a school. Children going to regular and inclusive schools, institutes, or who are being home schooled or not scholarized, can visit our center for individualized therapeutic services.
Post the assessment report discussion, based on the findings of the assessment and the information gathered during parents’ interview, the number of sessions are recommended to you by our therapist. The frequency of the sessions may vary depending on your child’s needs.
Yes, we believe that working with parents is equally, if not more important than working with the child. To begin with, we provide a list of recommendations for parents to enable them meet goals at home. The therapist and parents work as a team to bring about change. The therapist will guide the parents on how to work with the child, and also demonstrate a few examples if need be, in our observation room. If parents face any difficulties, time is set aside specifically to guide them. Also, child specific behavioral charts, checklists, and activities are provided for the child to be done at home to bring about sustainable change.
It is also important to mention that your child will receive a tailored Individualized Intervention Plan including a list of targeted objectives to track his/her progress.
Card of people of determination is a personal card issued by the Ministry of Community Development to People of Determination. It is considered to be an official document indicating that the holder is disabled to ensure the rights and services established in the Federal Persons with Disabilities Law No. 29 of 2006 and the regulations and decisions issued in implementation thereof.
Please note that we have partnered with FAZAA and Abu Dhabi Accueil; kindly contact us for more information regarding offers.
Wonderful Minds does not provide cards for People of Determination. The Ministry of Community Development (MOCD) provides the card.
However, to apply for this card, there is need for a psychological report from an official authority accredited with the ministry that supports the existence of disability. We at Wonderful Minds provide this report, which will help you apply for the card.
Of course! In fact, it is recommended and encouraged that you consult a therapist in case of any doubts. If there is nothing to worry about, the therapist will asses your child and let you know, so that you can have peace of mind. And if there is indeed a concern, the earlier it is detected, and treated, the better the outcomes.
