Special Needs

Accommodating Families with Special Needs and Disabilities 

MAS DC has established Special Needs committee  to help ensure that MAS DC creates an an inclusive environment within the MAS DC community, especially for our families with Special Needs.  We are partnering with the organization MUHSEN (Muslims Understanding and Helping Special Education Needs), which works with communities in the US to accommodate special needs community members.

 

Needs Assessment

We are interested in learning more about the specific needs of the Special Need Families in our community. If you have a family member with special needs or disabilities, please complete the Needs Assessment Survey (link below). If you know of a family in our community who has a family member with special needs, please share this webpage link OR survey link to them. All responses are confidential and will only be provided to the MUHSEN team.

Please complete the survey by November 30th, 2017.

Volunteers

MAS DC is recruiting volunteers (high school and older) who are interested in working with special needs individuals.  If you are interested, please contact Amina Khan at [email protected]  Please provide your name, age, and contact information.

We will be compiling a list of interested volunteers and will be in touch when we have dates available for local MUHSEN-led training programs, insha’Allah.
