“There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do, instead of what he cannot do.”

Thank you for taking out from your precious time to browse through our website. A warm welcome to you!

STEP BY STEP CENTRE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS was setup in 2011 to provide the highest quality of educational services for children with special needs in Qatar, so that they can reach their full potential and worth.

Since its inception in 2011, SBS has grown to be a trusted place for special needs children, by their parents. We have opened our doors to more than 300 children, who taught us many important lessons of life, brought smile on our face, amazed us, and gave us unconditional love.

We have learnt over time that- challenges are what make life interesting, and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. Step by step is a place where we see every child as an individual. We celebrate differences.

The past few years have been an amazing journey, where we not only motivated, inspired, and gave but also learnt precious lessons, most importantly succeeded and celebrated the success of our lovely children.

I feel proud today to say that we are now Qatar’s leading and most respected Special Needs Centers and it is only because of our amazing team of professionals, who work passionately to teach our children the way they learn.

I thank all you parents for trusting us and giving us an opportunity to try to make a difference in your child’s life. I also as a parent of a special needs child, am thankful for who he is for all the joy he brings in our life and wouldn’t want him in any other way. He has inspired me to do what I’m doing today.

It is true that life of an Autistic home is a roller coaster ride, full of challenges, routine, love, laughter, tears, frustration, celebration and lot more, but never boring!

Cheers to all lovely parents, professional’s, and organizations that have been supporting us in bringing a change or should I say smile on our children’s face!
