Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Alternative communication

Most of the children and adults at ADI are nonverbal; others have severe language impairment. To secure each individual's ability to communicate, ADI has pioneered an advanced Alternative Communications Program. Communication and rehabilitation therapists utilize cutting-edge alternative and augmentative communication technologies to find the optimal communication methods for each resident. This promotes comprehension and expression; enhances emotional connections with family, friends, and caregivers; and leads to a marked increase in cognitive level and learning capacity.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

ADI’s residential facilities offer a warm, homelike environment where the children receive the support they require for all daily and personal activities. Staff and volunteers for many activities are at a ratio of one caregiver per child. Assisted-living quarters afford teenagers and young adults the opportunity to experience greater independence and face fresh challenges. Early intervention wings provide a holistic therapeutic environment for infants and toddlers with severe disabilities. Identifying a child’s abilities and developing them to the fullest extent from an early age increases every child’s potential for developing beyond the initial prognosis.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Most ADI residents suffer from respiratory complications and breathing difficulties, often leading to pneumonia and hospitalization. In response, ADI’s Respiratory Therapy Program offers personalized respiratory treatment including use of sophisticated equipment and devices that clear the lungs and enhance breathing; regular respiratory sessions incorporated within all daily activity; and training and guidance for rehabilitative aides. Specifically tailored to individual needs, the program minimizes medical complications, prevents recurrent pneumonia, and wards off hospitalization, freeing residents to pursue normative activities in a greatly enhanced quality of life.

Population(s) Served

Forging a connection between the patient, the caregiver and the horse is the cornerstone of ADI’s equine therapy program. Creating and maintaining a relationship with the horse includes working within the horse’s natural habitat, interacting with the horse, watching, feeding, caring for, and playing with the horse and more. In this unique program, interaction between the horse and its caregiver creates foundations of empathy in the child, teaching the child to see the other’s needs, guard personal space, understand social cues, express emotions and foster cooperation. Additionally, interacting with the horse helps improve general cognitive abilities, organization, space orientation, motor ability and physical strength.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

ADI Negev’s Smart Classroom is equipped with a mobile communication computer, touch screen and projector that enable the teacher to project the communication board directly onto the wall. This enables all the students in the class to see the board simultaneously and interact with it. The teacher can also show students a video or picture related to the topic being taught by projecting onto a large screen so that everyone, including those with visual impairments can see the material clearly. With communication whiteboards, students can also project symbols or pictures of their choice directly onto the board. Alternative communication devices such as these encourage students to participate in lessons despite their inability to speak.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

ADI uses various multisensory therapy tools and environments such as therapeutic gardening, sensory activity walls, darkrooms, mobile multisensory device kits and Snoezelen to stimulate the senses of residents, helping them experience the sights, sounds and feel of the world around them. The innovative Snoezelen multisensory room stimulates residents' senses in a padded, all-white room by incorporating delicate fiber optics, a colorful slide screen, soft music and more for an optimal sensory stimulation experience in an inviting and relaxing environment.
