Yad Eliezer’s Shalhevet Early Learning Initiative was created to give children in Israel the tools to succeed. Today, over twenty elementary schools in the Jerusalem area partner with Yad Eliezer for the Shalhevet Early Learning Initiative. Schools that have been accepted to the program are responsible to map their student body for potential Shalhevet beneficiaries. Information about these students is presented to the Shalhevet offices for assessment, including criteria such as low socio-economic status. Tutors and diagnosticians for selected students are brought into Israeli schoolsin order to ensure that children from underprivileged families will receive the help that they need. Treatment takes place during morning hours when children are best able to process new material. Early diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities in elementary school children changes their future. Imagine what your life would be like if you had never learned to read. But hundreds more students in over twenty more Israeli elementary schools are waiting for Yad Eliezer to garner the financial resources to add their school to the Shalhevet roster. Your donation allows children who were unable to read, write, or master other basic academic skills get on track within as little as three months – another statistic nipped in the bud. Give a child in Israel the gift of success – donate to the Yad Eliezer Shalhevet Early Learning Initiative today!
