This recertification affirms the organization’s dedication to delivering high-quality education and support to autistic students and those with other communication challenges.
Since its initial certification, the Center has implemented several key programs and initiatives, significantly enhancing the learning experience and environment for autistic students.

Similarly, feedback from the employees has been exceptionally encouraging. The staff feel more equipped and confident in their abilities to support autistic students, noting a profound impact on their professional and personal lives. Ahlam Moosa, a Special Education Teacher at Alia, shared, “Becoming a Certified Autism Center has been a game-changer for me.
