New faces, New Challenges !
Calming stress therapy
As the new school year kicks off, Beit Uri’s school for 42 residential and external students aged 6-21 welcomed two severely autistic newcomers straight from the Ukrainian warzone. Individual therapeutic programs have been drawn up for each child, including sand and foam therapy to ease trauma-related and anxiety issues, horse riding therapy to restore confidence and pet therapy to learn nurturing and kindness to others.
With the help of Beit Uri’s multi-lingual staff, Ukrainian-speaking personnel are helping the two 7 year old newcomers find their way in a new country and new setting.
For the adult members, all of whom are employed in cottage industry workshops, a new 2nd hand clothing shop has opened enabling small groups of residents to be taught folding, sorting and stacking techniques, processing (donated) clothing requests from all 9 residential houses, as well as helping serve staff members who can buy for a nominal sum from the rails of donated clothing.
The diverse therapeutic programs for all the 118 residents can continue as a result of donations received by our generous GlobalGiving friends and we thank you for your continued help, interest and support.
