Our Play Center for Special Needs Children and their Families
Over the past months, we have learned about many of Yad Sarah's unique services.
We recently asked some of the wonderful volunteers what else we could see, so that we could tell you about it.
We were told that the Jerusalem Play Center for Special Needs Children and their Families, is one of the most innovative services offered by Yad Sarah at its headquarters branch in Jerusalem.The Center provides supervised play, instruction and lending of toys and games for children with motor and cognitive problems.
The center stresses full family involvement. The professional staff and trained volunteers play with the child (along with parents and siblings), give continuous guidance and lend appropriate toys and games with instructions for their use at home.The center has a creativity room, a gross motor activity room, a fine motor activity room, didactic games, computer games and games for loan.
The staff includes experts in special education, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work, clinical education students and specially trained volunteers.The Center has a warm and child friendly environment and the children love coming to it. They learn whilst playing!!If you need further information, please feel free to call the staff at 02-644-4488.
