The Association's mission is to provide equal access to essential treatment for every child and student in Israel diagnosed with ASD, regardless of gender, ethnic/religious background, or place of residence
ACR remains at the forefront, the largest and most established organization providing diagnosis, treatment, and therapeutic intervention for toddlers and schoolchildren with ASD. Critical to fulfilling our mission is the creation of services that are accessible to children in their natural environment, be it in daycare centers, preschools, or schools. ACR provides training for its ASD professionals, and serves some 2,000 children throughout Israel in 200 childcare centers, preschools, and treatment centers, as well as through our "In-School" program for schoolchildren.
The therapeutic kindergartens, day-care centers and schools which the Association works in provide the children with an intensive therapeutic plan through multi-professional teams from various fields: psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, art, music and drama therapists, integration coordinators, cognitive therapists as well as psychiatrists and neurologists. The treatment is carried out by planning and establishing the most appropriate treatment plan for each child, and encourages the involvement of the families and the child's surroundings to ensure the most intensive and effective treatment and progress for the child.
