BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 9, 2017 / -- Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices, The Center for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), was pleased to have Mrs. Shirley Rimon Bracha, Chief of the Department of Education at Tel Aviv, Israel along with her colleagues and Ms. Sivan Aloni, Assistant to the Consul General of Israel.

The delegates arrived with the purpose of observing Shema Kolainu, a model school, and were greeted by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, SK Founder and CEO, Mr. Ezra Friedlander, CEO at The Friedlander Group, Mrs. Suri Gruen, the Program Director and Mrs. Gili Rechani, the Educational Director.

The visitors arrived to observe and educate themselves about the methods practiced and implemented daily in the lives of students living with ASD and their families.
Dr. Joshua Weinstein led the meeting and offered valuable insights. Many topics were discussed including, Home and Center based programs, training programs extended to parents and caregivers, as well as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the underlying educational approach at Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices.
ABA entails the comprehensive application of behavioral principles to enhance the development, abilities, and self direction skills of children and adults.

The visitors toured throughout the facilities, giving them the opportunity to observe first hand the children at Shema Kolainu. They were particularly impressed to visit the Daily Living Skills Center, where children are trained to lead an independent life to their full potential. They also visited the fully equipped classrooms, including the Multi-sensorial Room, which offers a therapeutic approach to teaching the children visual tracking and cause-and-effect associations.

The guests presented Dr. Weinstein with a gift from Israel and were bestowed with an individual piece of students framed artwork, which serve as commemorative milestones of the Shema Kolainu students' accomplishments. As the meeting came to close, Dr. Joshua Weinstein reflected on the many blessings and miracles that have contributed to Shema Kolainu's success and it's students' achievements.
