The Jonah Press Sport and Recreation Center at Beit Issie Shapiro provides adapted physical exercise while emphasizing the development of crucial social skills through sports, based on the premise that improved social skills can be developed by optimizing behavior and motor ability.
Our Sports Center is a safe environment with adapted equipment accessible for children and adults with disabilities. Our staff conducts an assessment of the client’s base-line functioning and then develops an individual activity program. All programs include the mediation of a qualified and experienced physical trainer. We focus on cooperative work with families, to promote progress in meeting their goals within the framework of individual and group physical activities for children and adults with a range of disabilities.
