ADI Jerusalem provides its residents with the specialized services they need to grow and thrive:
- Residential Living
- Medical Care
- Rehabilitative and Therapeutic Treatment
- Special Education
- Vocational Training Opportunities
- Social and Cultural Activities
As a service to the greater community, ADI Jerusalem also created ‘ADI 4 U,’ a dedicated hotline and a wide offering of free informational services, educational programming and counseling that provides assistance, guidance and support for parents of children with disabilities. ADI 4 U plays an important role in the community as an easily accessible source of information and emotional support, as well as a facilitator of enriching lectures and support groups.
An ADI 4 U initiative called ‘Very Special Babysitter’ utilizes multiple localized social media groups to pair the parents of children with disabilities with uniquely qualified babysitters: special education students and therapists in training. In this way, parents of children with special needs can leave their children with babysitters who have a profound understanding of disability care, the babysitters are provided with an opportunity to earn money and acquire practical skills on the job, and the children receive the dedicated care and attention they require and deserve.
Both ADI Jerusalem and its sister facility in Israel’s south, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, are under the supervision of the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, and the Department of People with Disabilities of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, and Social Services.
