Dubai Autism Center (DAC) unveiled its plan for a smart digital transformation of its services provided to parents of children with autism. The plan aims at providing the rehabilitation and special educational services in parallel with preserving the students’ health and safety, amid expectations that a different kind of smart educational system will emerge instead of the traditional system, which will gradually disappear in the future.
Mohammed Al Emadi, Director General and Board Member of Dubai Autism Center, said, “The year 2020 was a distinguished experience and a qualitative leap in the path of the Dubai Autism Center in light of the “Covid-19” pandemic, as it was a push for the adoption of a number of smart digital systems and programs in order to provide the opportunity for students’ parents to obtain services by innovative means in a safe educational environment to ensure the achievement of the desired goals,”
On the other hand, Al Emadi said that the DAC training programs did not stop despite the pandemic’s circumstances, indicating that the training lectures were organized “remotely” through social media and smart applications and had achieved positive results from which many parents and professionals benefited from them, indicating that the total number of views for these lectures reached nearly 50 thousand views during the year 2020.
Al Emadi stressed that the smart digital transformation plan also aims to enhance the flexibility of services provided to parents of children with autism to obtain them in an organized and integrated manner. Al Emadi explained that the purpose of applying the smart digital transformation plan to the DAC services is to meet the different needs of parents of children with autism, which will contribute to providing more accurate and efficient services within flexible and comprehensive procedures.
