Choose the Right School.

When we arrived back in Dubai over 2 years ago, I knew that finding a school for my daughter Ruby (who happens to have Down Syndrome)would be challenging, and yet I truly could not fully embrace the reality of the challenge until I had to experience it myself.

Rejection would have been a polite word to use as time after time I endured ignorance far beyond what I ever expected, along with outdated information and assumptions about what it means to be a child with Down Syndrome in today’s age and go to school.
