Manazel Real Estate has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with US-based May Institute for the development of a specialised school in the UAE.

The project will allow the two parties to explore the need for and feasibility of developing and operating a school for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the emirates.

May Institute centre is one of the largest providers of special education schools and services for children, adolescents, and adults with autism and other special needs in the US.

The new venture is in line with Manazel’s strategic initiative to diversify and expand into dynamic growth and niche markets, capitalising on a range of opportunities while also servicing the community.

Manazel’s chairman Mohamed M. Al Qubaisi, said: “I am delighted to announce this strategic alliance with May Institute, which reflects our constant search for opportunities that lead towards growth momentum and the company’s commitment to its on-going expansion strategy to enter new growth and niche markets.”

May Institute will deliver due diligence services to Manazel to explore this project further which, according to Dr Lauren C. Solotar, president and CEO of May Institute, aligns with the institutes “strategic goal of expanding our reach to provide innovative ABA services to individuals with autism spectrum disorder across the lifespan”.

“We look forward to collaborating with Manazel on this assessment and are pleased to share our expertise with the UAE,” Solotar added.
