For many the cost of hearing aids and therapy might as well be a million pounds.

Deaf children, if given the correct early intervention, are able to integrate into mainstream society. If they miss out, few will ever catch up and will be dependent on us for the rest of their lives.

At Shema Kolenu early intervention, together with pioneering medical science and technology, are crucial to unlocking a child's ‘silent’ world. Our medical team, including ENT specialists, speech, musical and movement therapists, ensure that each child is accommodated along with their related/unrelated disabilities and we support the parents coping with this unexpected trauma and challenge. Our regional branches throughout Israel cater for all. Find out more by contacting rachel@shemakolenu.org
