Al Noor Training Centre, one of Dubai’s oldest centres for the rehabilitation of students with disabilities, has received fifteen premium Sennheiser headsets. This aims to address the challenges in hearing, listening, learning and concentration among some of the 180 students of determination on campus. Some of the products from Sennheiser’s new range of consumer headsets will assist students with hearing impairment as well as students who are sensitive to sound.
Heston Saldanha – Sales Director Consumer Division for Sennheiser M.E said “Sennheiser is associated with superior sound, so we are delighted to be able to assist students of determination in their challenges related to sound. One of the headphones we have offered is the Set 880 assistive listening device since it delivers crystal clear, enhanced sound to users with changing hearing needs. It is effortlessly simple to set up and use. We hope this will help some students with hearing impairment.”
“For students who are sensitive to sound, we have offered the PXC 550-II with Adaptive Noise Cancellation since it automatically adjusts to surroundings to suppress unwanted background noise. The PXC 550-II should help students to focus and concentrate.”
Al Noor is a non-profit organization that provides holistic development to an individual with disabilities with the intention of integrating them into mainstream society. The Centre relies on fundraising and sponsorship from corporates/communities to cover the costs of running the Centre.
The Al Noor Training Centre was established in 1981 with just 8 children. Since then, it has expanded, to enrich the lives of hundreds of children and young adults with various physical and cognitive challenges.
The Centre follows a holistic approach to the wellbeing and development of all students, who benefit from individualized, specially designed programmes to suit their specific needs. Its broad curriculum covers all areas of training and development, offers a wide range of therapies, vocational training, work placement schemes, co-curricular activities, and satellite programmes – all designed to support students and their families every step of the way. Today the centre has 180 students from more than 31 nationalities, who enjoy the excellent facilities of the purpose-built centre. The centre was generously donated by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
