Apart from the swing, we also await the launch of that pilot project to which Chaya has been accepted, organized by a unit of the JDC. It will enable us to provide her with our choice of paramedical therapies at home.
The funding for those services will follow the person with the disabilities rather than the therapists.
This is the model that we are advocating for all in order to facilitate de-institutionalization and the closure of warehouses like those of Aleh.
For now, Chaya receives one session of hydrotherapy per week. But it remains the the highlight of her life.
Here she is floating, kicking and obviously reveling in the hydrotherapy pool this week.
