JNF Work in Disabilities: Red Mountain Riding Ctr
People with severe physical and cognitive disabilities, combined with complex medical conditions, are perhaps the most vulnerable members of society. They are also the most underestimated. Unable to express their feelings, needs, and wants, some of these children have been considered beyond hope of rehabilitation and development. However, the RMTRC experience proves otherwise; with intensive care and specialized treatments, the children are able to grow and develop beyond the boundaries of their prognoses.
Results show that these extra treatments helped many of our riders to learn how to stand, walk, and talk. More importantly, the treatments gave them the feeling of normalcy that was much missing from their lives.
