For the First Time in Israel: A Festival for Children on the Autism Spectrum and Their Families Will Be Held on August 18-19, 2018 at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Renana Raz, The Train Theater, Alma Zohar, Losha Gavrielov and other artists will participate in “Safe Place” – a one of a kind festival in Israel, which offers two days of theatre, dance and music performances, along with innovative forms of storytelling, and an extraordinary tour throughout the museum – all geared to children (ages 4 and up) on the autism spectrum (and other cognitive disabilities) and their families.
Upon arrival at the location, a supportive team of volunteers will accompany the families and children throughout the entire stay at the museum. There will be a quiet area for relaxation and soundproof headphones, ear plugs and stress relief fidgets will be given out. The festival’s illustrated program can be printed out prior to the event for required preparation.
‘The Center for the Treatment and Research of Autism’ – an association for children at risk, serves as a supportive and loving professional aid for children and adults with autism, and their families.
The festival will be held in collaboration with the ‘Association for Children at Risk’ – the largest organization in Israel providing educational-therapeutic treatment for toddlers, with Autism Spectrum Disorder, in approximately 140 frameworks throughout the country.
