Tzad Kadimah Project
“Every single life can [and should] be improved.” (Dr. Peto, founder of the Conductive Education approach implemented and trained in Israel solely by Tsad Kadima)
Tsad Kadima is an award-winning Israeli non-for-profit organisation founded in 1987 by parents of children with Cerebral Palsy and professionals who embarked on a life-changing journey to bring the Conductive Education approach (Petõ) to Israel.
Tsad Kadima is the only organisation in Israel that implements and trains the unique Conductive Educational approach which focuses on developing personal abilities and constantly instilling motivation amongst children and adults with severe complex disabilities so they can learn skills and lead active, independent and autonomous lives, participating in their family and community frameworks and settings.
We operate in six cities throughout Israel – Eilat, Beer Sheva, Rishon LeTzion, Ness Ziona, Jerusalem and Or Akiva – hundreds of children and young adults in Israel with cerebral palsy and complex disabilities participate in our programs and receive the support they need. Our target audience includes thousands – infants, toddlers, children and youth (at our special education school), young adults and adults, their families and the wider community.
Tsad Kadima’s Educational-Therapeutic Centre for Infants and Children with Disabilities in Beer Sheva
Tsad Kadima’s centre in Beer Sheba provides a special, meaningful a second home for some 60 infants and children between ages six months to six years – all with various developmental delays, Cerebral Palsy and other complex physical disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other syndromes – and who are residents of Beer Sheva and the surrounding communities in southern Israel, including the Bnei Shimon Regional Council and as far west as the communities bordering the Gaza Strip.
Tsad Kadima came to Beer Sheva some fifteen years ago in response to a request from the local municipality to expand the scope and level of services for children with disabilities living in the city and the surrounding southern Negev region in Israel. After several years, Tsad Kadima established its Educational-Rehabilitative Centre in 2010 (the current building).
