Saadi J. Dhaher, General Manager of Al Ain Private Centre for Care and Rehabilitation, told City Times that Masoud was born with the disease. Down's syndrome (DS) is a congenital disorder, marked by diminished intelligence and physical abnormalities, including short stature and a broad facial profile. One in 800 newborn babies suffers from the disease.

Masoud came to the centre in 2000, and joined centre's School for children with special needs. The School arranges many programs which are designed to develop various cognitive and performance skills among retarded children. It is run by experienced specialists in this field.

Masoud's reports showed that he was far ahead of others in picking up the skills. He has scored high marks in Mathematics, Arabic language, Religion, History and Geography.
