The Arts Complex - Learning and Occupational Center

Our first Learning and Occupation Day Center was opened in collaboration with Alut - Israeli Society for Autistic Children, on December 2014 for adults (21+). It is located in Ramat Hasharon and “Kvutzat Hashavim” enlists professionally trained and experienced therapists.  Our counselor-participant ratio is 1:2 (in other existing facilities the
ratio is 1:4), a practice that enables our participants to benefit from significant and meaningful learning and creativity in a calm and supportive environment.

  • The rationale

    The rationale

    • Adults on the autistic spectrum have the right and the ability to realize their potential in all of the significant areas which comprise "the quality of life" for all human beings.
    • They have the right and ability to continue to learn, to develop, to communicate with others, to experience a variety of emotions, to develop preferences, to choose between alternatives and to develop their abilities.
    • When allowed to do all these things, they are able to integrate more fully, to contribute to the community and to receive something back.
