Group activities are offered to individuals who live in the community in order to encourage and develop social interactions, the use of acquired personal and interpersonal skills and interdependence.
Leisure activities are a critical dimension of the quality of life for all people, particularly for individuals with a neurodevelopmental disorder – an often-forgotten segment of the population. These activities are a vehicle through which they have fun, develop friendships, socialize in a peer group, and develop skills and competencies.
Miriam Foundation launched the Azrieli Adult Leisure Program in the fall of 2011 and has been providing leisure activities on evenings and weekends ever since. The emphasis on group activities allows participants to enjoy their leisure time, create and nurture friendships, and maintain and enhance their social language and motor skills.
