PROVIDING CHILDREN WORLD CLASS SERVICES IN COLLABORATION WITH PARENTS AND EDUCATORS

10 Years of Making a Difference

kidsFIRST Medical Center was founded in 2006, the same year that the UAE introduced Federal Law No. 29. With their establishment, both kidsFIRST Medical Center and the UAE government formalized an inclusive vision for children with learning difficulties and special needs throughout the UAE.

Since then, kidsFIRST’s multi-disciplinary team of international pediatric health professionals has worked with infants and children of all ages to ensure their academic, physical, and emotional growth.

Over the past ten years, kidsFIRST has grown substantially as parents and educators experience our commitment to evidence-based services, and therapists thrive in our supportive, flexible, and collegial work environment.

We’re thankful for every family, doctor, and teacher who has spread the word and provided helpful feedback along the way. These collaborative relationships have resulted in answers for parents and help for kids with quality pediatric care.

If you are a parent seeking help for your child, an educator looking to support your students, or a therapist with a passion to make a difference, welcome to kidsFIRST Medical Center.
