A screening programme was carried out among school-going children in Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates (UAE), to identify children with learning disorders. During the course of one academic year, 34 such children were identified. The cause was considered preventable in around half of the cases. In a third of cases with a genetic cause, prevention was possible with existing knowledge and practice.
