Building a Better Future for Children with Special Needs in Israel

Welcome to Beit Issie Shapiro - International leaders in creating accessible communities for people with special needs.

Beit Issie Shapiro's innovative educational and treatment programs serve thousands of children and adults with special needs and their families. Through our wide range of activities and programs, we work to improve the civic rights of those with special needs and their full inclusion in the community. And through our research and training programs we are raising the standard of services available to them. Each year we impact more than 17,000 people - not only in Israel, but in other parts of the world, too.

Sharon, mother of Or, writes ... "Beit Issie Shapiro is a place of joy, optimism, and faith. It's a place where, beyond the difficulties, people see the beauty and health in every child, and give him or her the very best, with dedication and tons of love. For both Or and us the parents, Beit Issie Shapiro is our second home."
