Ten years ago Aim Habonim was established as a loving school for special needs and disabled Jewish children in the Manchester Kehilla. Providing these children with a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment, is what makes Aim Habonim so vital for these challenged children.
Its fundamental principle is to enhance the lives of these children by recognizing the individual needs of each of the children and to deliver a specialised education suited to their needs. Catering for a range of physical disabilities & sensory impairments amongst our children means that we must offer a continuum of therapeutic input and services to ensure that each child develops and reaches his / her fullest potential.
4 years ago Aim Habonim moved to a purpose built facility with a specialised play area, sensory room, and track hoisting, amongst other user friendly technologies, which only increased its ability to provide for the children.
In a positive atmosphere of enthusiasm and joy for life and learning, Aim Habonim provides responsive and quality care to all the children and is proud of its outstanding individual programs that use - amongst others - a multi-disciplinary team approach including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech & Language Therapy.
We have recently created a petting area and with the help of a therapist, the children thrive from bearing responsibility and caring for their very own pets.
We currently have 56 children enrolled in the school with some children coming in on split placement from other state schools
At Aim Habonim our priority is to look after our disabled and under privileged children and help them develop academically, socially, physically and emotionally in a happy and secure environment. We spare no effort or expense to ensure that we employ professional and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide each child with proper supervision and care.
We work in partnership with the parents and carers, meaning that we are able to offer support and advice to the families of these children, and help them access specialised services catering for all the family needs.
All this comes at a tremendous cost and there is no end to the specialised input that we can provide to help these children grow and reach their true potential.
Without the help of our generous donors and benefactors, Aim Habonim would not be able to provide all the help and care that it does and will continue to do IYH.
