We have undertaken to turn the daily meals at Kishurit to a joyful social experience,
as we invest in our students’ ability to gain maximum independence during
mealtime. In this program, our staff assists the students in recognizing and choosing their own
preferences, expressing their needs and creating social interaction during the meals. The program is adapted to the physical abilities and eating equipment of each
woman and encourages independence and self-sufficiency. Additionally, the program utilizes the Alternative Augmentative Communication Method to enable easier inter-personal communication.
