Chimes Israel uses an interdisciplinary approach that combines physical, social, psychological and paramedical interventions. Our goal is to assist our clients in developing to their fullest potential by creating and implementing individual habilitation plans with the cooperation of families or guardians, social workers, staff, and caretakers.
