Language learning is a window into different cultures, an opportunity to make connections, develop cognitive skills and expand employment opportunities. Migdal-Or (lighthouse) believes that every person with visual impairment or blindness has a right to fulfill their potential as a person, including to be able to access learning the Hebrew language in order to be able to speak the language in their society, or to come to Isarel.
Migdal-Or’s unique accessibility solutions for people with vision loss, together with interactive learning, up to date study materials, and an available and accessible learning space provide the student an optimal learning experience. The program takes place through individual sessions or in groups of up to three students, according to their language skill and visual impairment.
Participants will acquire basic communication skills effective for everyday situations, as well as basic reading skills and Hebrew braille letters.
The costs include: one teacher which accompanies the group and assists each student individually, a private preliminary session with each of the students, accessible learning materials, assistance, and installation of assistive technology in the individual’s home, where necessary.
