RAK Hospital now equipped to rehabilitate children

The centre aims to help children with various learning difficulties to maximise their abilities to function as independently as possible within the community.

RAS AL KHAIMAH// The first Paediatric Rehabilitation Centre offering physical, occupational, and speech therapy for children with developmental disabilities, has opened at RAK Hospital.

The centre aims to help children with various learning difficulties to maximise their abilities to function as independently as possible within the community.

“Child and adolescent psychiatrists point out that learning disabilities are treatable,” said Dr Raza Siddiqui, CEO Arabian Healthcare Group and executive director of RAK Hospital.

“If not detected and treated early, however, they can have a tragic snowballing effect. No two children can be equal in terms of abilities and mental prowess, but every child deserves an equal chance of leading a healthy lifestyle, free of as many disabilities as possible.”
