About us

Reach Out was established in 2008 by Suzanne Nicholas, a British-educated special needs professional who has been based in Dubai for over 30 years.

The mission of the centre is to provide the best therapy services and support to children and adolescents with ASD and developmental delay, in the fields of applied behaviour analysis; school shadowing; speech therapy; and occupational therapy. We understand that each child and every family that we meet is unique, and therapy is tailored to their individual needs.

As a multi-disciplinary team, we work closely together, to ensure that each child has a high quality programme of specialised therapy. We also provide training workshops to parents and professionals.

We are committed to assisting children with Autism and developmental delays reach their full potential through providing evidence and research-based treatment based on the principles of ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis). ABA has several thousand studies across populations proving its effectiveness working with children with additional needs.

Our BCBAs (Board Certified Behaviour Analyst), BCaBA’S (Board certified assistant behaviour analyst) assess the current skill level of each child and create a treatment plan centered on Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), tailored specifically to each child.

All of our team are BCBA or RBT (Registered Behaviour Technician) qualified and registered with the BACB.
