Children with Severe Disabilities

This is a crucial program for which we are raising urgently needed funds. There are 120 children in Beit Issie Shapiro's educational frameworks, each of whom have physical and/or intellectual disabilities. They deserve the best, most holistic, customized educational and therapeutic program we can provide them.

To this end, Beit Issie Shapiro offers a holistic program of Innovative Education and Therapies for children with severe disabilities (ages 1-12). Every child receives a full basket of tailored educational and therapeutic services, employing state-of-the-art, customized assistive technologies and leading, research-based methodologies. This includes a personalized special education program; physical, occupational, sport and speech therapies; music and art therapies; multi-sensory therapy; hydrotherapy; family support services and more.

In the words of Efrat, mother of 4-year-old Yaeli who has Down Syndrome, “At Beit Issie Shapiro, our Yaeli immediately realized that she was in good hands. Yaeli is developing in an amazing way, and we are surprised by the pace. Time and time again, she proves motivated to learn and to cope with challenges.”
