This holiday season, please open your hearts and help us build a playground for children in need!
COVID-19 has devastated families with autistic, disabled, and special-needs children.
Parents working from home have to accommodate for their children's specific educational requirements while juggling their professional workload; heads of households have lost their jobs and are now struggling to provide their children with the special care they need.
With the holiday season approaching and during an economic crisis, Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices resumed offering quality treatment, education, professional training and mentoring to those in need.
You can help us provide our students with a safe educational environment and give these students a chance to succeed outside of the classroom. Your immediate contribution will help build a state-of-the-art sensory rooftop playground and provide students with a lifetime of benefits.
Why a Playground?
Children need to spend time outdoors, especially those with autism. Their needs, however, are very unique: some children seek sensory experiences and others avoid them. Some are non-verbal, while others have no problem speaking. Children with autism may have a difficult time socializing and interacting with other children.
Improves cognitive and physical development
Improves communication and social skills
Promotes healthy release of pent-up energy
Reduces fears and outbursts
Offers positive sensory stimulation
Boosts positive emotions
What's the Plan?
Our rooftop playground will be specifically designed to meet the special needs of children with ASD and other related disabilities.
Safety First Our very own space, separate from the public and monitored by our trained caregiving staff, allowing us to provide additional safety to our children. Not only will we be able to make sure there is sufficient supervision during playtime, but we will also be able to add an extra layer of health-safety by limiting our children's exposure to other people.
We plan on using sand and rubber safety-floors to protect children with balancing difficulties, and smooth surfaces to help maintain sanitary conditions.
Our playground will be domed, so our kids can enjoy it throughout the year. It will be made of high-grade, durable materials such as metal and quality plastic.
Ramps, guardrails, and pathways will all be part of our playground design. We will provide areas for social interaction as well as a quiet corner for children who need a moment to regroup.
A Sensory-Rich Environment
Our playground will include many different textures, sounds, and things to look at. Spinning, swinging, jumping, climbing, and hanging will all be part of our space, and different sensory play panels will be incorporated throughout.
