During his tour, the Deputy Ruler of Sharjah inaugurated a simulation laboratory for people with learning difficulties, launched by the Sharjah Centre for Learning Difficulties, a step taken to employ innovation and digital transformation tools to support people with learning disabilities and their families.

The mobile laboratory makes use of virtual reality and three-dimensional technologies, and is able to create six experiences that simulate the reality of students with learning difficulties.

It also highlights the centre's initiatives, projects, and services meant to help people with learning difficulties.
