Security Rooms for Autistic Children at Alut Homes in Beer Sheva
Alut, the Israeli Center for Autism and JNF will build 4 more residential homes at the village for autistic children in Beer Sheva. The new homes will serve 32 additional autistic children from Beer Sheva area whose needs are so severe that they require a residential home.
After the recent Gaza war, Protective Edge, Alut realized the importance of building large, comfortable security rooms in each of these homes. Autistic children can’t run to the shelter within 20 seconds, – they need to sleep there all night during tense times. During Protective Edge, the children spent 5 weeks sleeping in a workshop on mattresses on the floor! These new security rooms will be used during peaceful periods for everyday activities such as: drama class, Yoga, art and music.
“Special Day in the Forest
A Day in The Forest is an ongoing outreach program that has been developed for diverse special needs populations, including students from special education frameworks, children affected by terror attacks, children living with cancer and other groups. For each group, a tailor-made program is developed to meet their needs and capabilities. Forests offer ample opportunity to use all the senses to experience and learn about the environment. Whenever possible, visiting groups of special needs youngsters are integrated with other groups, helping to break down stereotypes and to integrate those with different needs in the community at large.
