Achiya’s two Developmental Centers evaluate children with developmental challenges and provide therapy for children from birth to age 15. Since the majority of our clients are Orthodox (although many non-religious Israelis bring their children to our center) all services are provided in an environment that adheres to Jewish law. Achiya’s public awareness campaign has drastically decreased the stigma associated with therapeutic intervention. As a result, children are receiving the help they need at an earlier age, increasing the therapy’s effectiveness and decreasing the amount of time needed in therapy.

Each therapeutic department is supervised by a Department Head, whose role is to work together with the therapist and parents to create a therapeutic plan, monitor each child’s progress and be accessible to parents to address all questions and concerns.
