Special Education

Helen Keller School for the Visually Impaired

In 1960, Embrace the Middle East (then known as BibleLands) opened a vocational training centre for older blind girls in Jerusalem. It was originally named the Helen Keller House after Helen Keller. Now known as the Helen Keller School (HKS), it provides holistic education for visually impaired children.

 

Classes are small to allow teachers more time with each child. As well as all the usual curriculum subjects, the children learn Arabic Braille and skills that will help them to lead independent lives such as mobility training and daily living skills.When students reach the age of 12, they are encouraged to join mainstream school. They continue to receive support from HKS staff, who work closely with the student’s new school. HKS provides unique counselling services for students’ families, helping them to accept and cope with their child’s disability.

The Feuerstein Institute

The Feuerstein Institute is an international education, treatment and research center. Our mission is three-fold;

  • To develop programmatic and research based paradigms based on the Feuerstein Method, which teaches systematic thinking and learning skills.

  • To help children and adults from all backgrounds, religions and etiologies overcome cognitive, emotional, psychological and social disabilities and maximize their potential, with a view toward integration to the greatest possible extent.

We accomplish this goal through use of the Feuerstein Method, an unique educational system which uses mediation and specialized instruments in order to enhance learning potential. As a result, clients gain the knowledge and tools to reach beyond their manifest abilities and achieve even more than they have dreamed.
