Building A Better Future for Special Needs Children
We believe that every special needs child deserves appropriate, individual treatment in order to guarantee their best possible advancement into society.
What is the Shlavim Center?
To Childrenwith Love
Children with disabilities receive warmth and love, a feeling of belonging, special education and modern medical treatment.
Parents enjoy the regular respite they need to recharge and refresh themselves through the knowledge that their children are in professional, caring hands.
Teenagersbecome sensitized, enriched and empowered to become leaders.
Our unique formula unites teenage volunteers, therapists, families and special children in a special relationship that deeply enriches all involved. Through a wide range of innovative programs and creative activities, all under one roof, they share fun, learning and love:
Together, we form a special circle of friendship and love.
The life of a child with special needs is filled with appointments. Sadly, it is also filled with disappointments. Often it seems that no one cares other than therapists, there are no calls, no visits, and no interaction with anyone but family…
We now have a cure for loneliness:
