Children Ahead, a London-based UK charity that supports Jewish
children who have mild general learning disabilities, was previously
awarded a grant by Jewish Child’s Day. Children from low-income
families are offered therapy programmes specifically tailored to
their needs. Programmes include specialist teaching, occupational
therapy, speech and language therapy, and educational psychology.
Children who have special needs often have difficulty expressing
their emotions verbally. Through the Children Ahead ‘Kid Create’ creative
arts therapy programme, children use music, art and play equipment to
explore their world. This kind of creative environment can be highly
motivating, making children feel encouraged and empowered to express themselves.
