The Center for Academic Research
The Center for Academic Research in Kfar Tikva is dedicated to conducting research and field studies related to adults with disabilities. The Center develops intervention programs and support systems in a variety of fields, with the goal of enabling adults with disabilities to live an autonomous and meaningful life, each according to his/her own personal ‘life-journey”
Studies conducted at the Center take a humanistic approach emphasizing the whole person. We recognize that all individuals have intrinsic value as human beings, and are capable of independent thinking and autonomous judgment. Adults with disabilities deserve respect and the necessary support to maximize their abilities and nurture their talents. Every individual is entitled to quality of life and to receive assistance in a manner that preserves his/her dignity.
