University of Ain Shams Establishes First Fully-Equipped Special Needs Educational Hall

The facility's launch comes as part of a bigger focus on students with disabilities.

Ain Shams University

The Faculty of Arts at the University of Ain Shams has inaugurated the first educational hall designed exclusively for students with disabilities in a ceremony attended by Egypt’s Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Khaled Abdel Ghafar, as well as the governors of Cairo and Alexandria.

Fully equipped with customised computers, speakers and electronic projectors, the hall also comes as part of a bigger plan to enhance education for students with disabilities, including book and tuition fee reductions.

Some of the disabilities catered to include muscular atrophy, hearing impairment, cerebral palsy, autism, mental disability, learning difficulties, psychological and neurological conditions, short-term patients, renal failure patients and tumor patients undergoing renal dialysis or chemotherapy sessions. 

Having also founded several centers throughout the university that target different disabilities such as the Center of Visual Service, which helps blind students to undertake academic research, the university believes in equal opportunities and in granting those with disabilities the tools with which to cope with regular education system's curriculum.
