DUBAI: With highly qualified teaching and training staff, the Riverston Children’s Centre (RCC), a centre dedicated to children’s specific learning needs and support, has started its service portfolio by offering an Early Intervention Programme (EIP) to support children’s development by enhancing their strengths and addressing needs. The programme launched for ages 3 to 6 at its facility in Dubai’s Umm Suqeim neighbourhood.

This age bracket has been proven to be a crucial stage in a child’s development and learning resulting in better outcomes when any needs are addressed. The full-time EIP will provide intensive specialist support early on and in turn, allowing students to advance and excel in their all-round development.

Jackie Harland, Director at Riverston Children’s Centre, told The Gulf Today it provides speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and learning support for children and their families. “Our multidisciplinary team offers in-depth assessments, diagnosis and therapy input as well as emotional support for both children and parents,” she said.

She is a renowned UK Speech and Language therapist and has been in paediatrics for over 30 years. She has set up and run multidisciplinary centres and early years provisions both in the UK, and internationally.
