The mission of staff of the child development center is to diagnose and treat the development disorder of the child. Development disorders include:

  • Sensory problems
  • Motor disturbances
  • Language difficulties
  • Mental retardation
  • Social interaction
  • Autism
  • Perception disorders


Development disorders may be diagnosed immediately after birth but sometimes the diagnosis is delayed until the age of 5 years. We have a team from multiple professions: neurology, psychiatry, social worker, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and hearing therapy and individualized education. All work together and finally the family receives a recommendation for continuing treatment in the hospital or in the community.


Special services:


♦ Library for lending books and games specialized for children with special needs and their

   families. Retired volunteers with an educational background run the library.

♦ "From risk to opportunity" program: Integration of children with special needs in regular

   child daycare. A team of tutoring and health professionals runs this program.

♦ Special clinic for eating disorders of organic and emotional basis. A multi-professional

   team run this clinic.

♦ Group therapy for parents of children with attention and concentration disorder (ADHD).

♦ Group preparation for children with mild learning difficulties ready for the first class


♦ Graphomotor group for children with difficulties in the graphomotor field.

♦ Group for children with language difficulties.


The team of the child development center works side by side with the HMO physicians, the welfare service, the educational psychological service and the parent association.
