Hi Scott.
I have obtained the response below from a very well placed person in Qatar and hope this helps.
Regards

"It really depends on the level of severity of the Aspergers. Often children with Aspergers attend mainstream school and receive some special attention. If their child is not able to be in mainstream education they could start enquiring with the following:

If they can't find any suitable school then I suggest they do not move to Qatar and stay where their child's needs can be met."
