Our early childhood network includes rehab nurseries,
kindergartens and learning centers for hearing impaired
children, and for toddlers with diverse disabilities.
Our hearing-impaired network provides assistance to 700
babies, toddlers and children, in two main centers.
The early childhood therapy center for ages, 0 to 3, includes a
rehab nursery, as well as para professional therapies for children
in the normative school systems.
The Learning and Therapy Centers serve children aged 3 until
18. It includes kindergartens, tutoring and resource room for
children in the regular school systems, after school clubs, para
professional therapies and more.
The far-reaching goals of the program are complete and
successful mainstreaming of all children into the regular school
systems. To this end, we provide guidance to the parent during
the transition time, guidance to the teachers, and parents rights
We look on the parents as partners in the entire mainstreaming
Our therapists aim to narrow education gaps, improve social and
language skills, and maximize potential. We never forget that
the most important person here is the child, his feelings, his
dreams and his hopes. Sensitivity and devotion give our
children the tools they need to be all they can be.
Our rehab nurseries serve both hearing impaired and children
with various disabilities and challenges.
All the therapies need by the children are given in the nurseries,
enabling them to achieve and surpass therapy milestones.
Our rehab kindergartens for hearing impaired children, follow
up the work done by the nurseries. Upon acceptance, each child is evaluated and an individualized therapy program drawn up.
The children receive both group and individual therapy in school, in addition to the regular kindergarten activities and learning.
Shmaya runs an extremely successful and growing network of
After School Clubs for our children rom nursery through high
school age. The clubs provide a wide range of activities,
learning, sports, trips, and so on. The children also receive
support and emotions therapy in both individual and one on one setups.
The clubs are run by caring and empathetic counselors, social workers and other professionals.
The groups are divided according to age, and gender. During heir club hours, the children relax with others who cope with the same challenges. They are taught how to advocate for
themselves in all situations, and how to recognize their special qualities and innate worth.
