Yaldei’s Beyond Disability 24-Hour Fundraising Event

Just 24 hours to show kids with special needs that you believe in them!

Every day, children with disabilities face developmental challenges that many of us take for granted. At Yaldei, we never stop believing in a child’s infinite potential to learn and grow beyond their disabilities, but we need YOUR help in providing families with the intensive therapies and education plans that will make a world of difference in their lives.

On Sunday, Sept. 17 at 1:00 p.m., join Yaldei in showing special needs children that you believe in their infinite potential! Every dollar you donate during this 24-hour online campaign, from 1pm Sunday until 1pm Monday, will be QUADRUPLED thanks to three generous benefactors.

Watch your dollars GROW and you’ll be helping us reach our goal of raising $500,000 to provide families with hope for their child’s future.

Tune in on Sunday and together we can help special needs children go #BeyondDisability!

It’s important to read

Reading exposes children to all sorts of different language that they normally wouldn’t hear. We speak differently when we read as it requires us to use different vocabulary and sentence structure. In the same way that typically developing children need to learn to read in order to have access to a vocabulary that will teach them to learn from reading, Yaldei’s children, who have developmental challenges, need another source of input and books provide something that they wouldn’t necessarily get from the outside world. First they learn to read and then they read to learn.

“Books are an important part of any child’s development,” said Lisa Hamaoui, whose daughter Leah attends Ecole Yaldei. “For children with special needs perhaps even more so. Every time Leah turns a page she gets a new experience and learns something different.”

Please watch our video below to see how purchasing books through the Indigo Adopt a School Program can help our special children.

Today is the last day to vote for the Indigo Adopt a School Challenge!

Did you know that today is World Cerebral Palsy Day?

World Cerebral Palsy Day is a day dedicated to creating awareness about the challenges of cerebral palsy. It is estimated that over 40,000 Canadians have cerebral palsy.

Here at Yaldei, we offer a range of services to children with cerebral palsy. In fact, what makes Yaldei stand out is our multidisciplinary approach. “Our approach is ideal for the multiplicity of cerebral palsy challenges, because cerebral palsy affects the motoric in all areas of development and can also affect cognitive development,” said Ben Baer, Clinical Director at Yaldei. “When we work with any child, we want to work with them as much as possible in a meaningful, social and emotional environment which is why we set them up with peers in programs like our Early Intervention Group as well as work on setting up integration opportunities with partners.”
