    The Center for Child Evaluation and Teaching is a non-profit organisation that was established in 1984. It provides specialized diagnostic and remedial services in both English and Arabic in the field of learning disabilities. Presently services are provided for children between the ages of 8 - 14; although children of other ages are often helped as well. These children have average to above-average intelligence, but they face major difficulties in one or more of the following areas: reading, spelling, mathematics, oral and written expression. A severe discrepancy exists between the students’ apparent potential for learning and the student's low level of achievement. It is important to note that these difficulties are not due to mental retardation or difficulties in vision, hearing or any other sensory or physical handicaps.
