Special child...yum yum Must be rich ;-(
"wow....u got a job in Qatar...that’s awesome ..Now our daughter have better future there....I have heard Qatar is doing great in education field...and special kids are really treated well there and they have quite many institutes there" My first reaction when my husband told me he got a job in Qatar...
With quite many dreams for our daughter's better education (especially when she is special) I packed it in our luggage and head to Qatar....
"Hello is this, special need centre, my daughter is autistic .... Ok sure I’ll come tomorrow…”
With three institutes in a row, we visited and facility wise all of them are ok ( I won’t grade them bad but I was expecting something really good) , so we thought it’s okay she has to go to school we should select one of them…..
After asking about monthly fees I felt I was struck by lightning, 4000QR/month only +assessment fee (one time) +registration fee+ stationary +++++ list was non ending ……
Another school it was 5000 QR, another school, they say preference will be given to locals (in other words no chance).
All schools I have visited either they are Arabic, or expensive or getting admission is so impossible.
After that day I felt how helpless I am…..if I have a normal child I would have definitely chosen a school which is well within my reach and never have to be worried.
I have a question is it necessary if you have a special child you must be filthy rich, or works in QP where your child education is sponsored, and In other words I don’t have any idea what I can do. I am working with her as she is really smart and high functioning autistic.
Now most of you must bash me why I came to Qatar on the first place or I should have researched the web first for her schools…..the answer is I have, I made calls I searched net, but not a single institute have wrote their fees ( special need centre) .
It’s just I felt …… it’s not necessary if your child is special or differently able you are rich.
