20% of children face exclusion from their school because of their academic, physical, emotional, behavioural and related difficulties. A high percentage of these children when left untreated, become disaffected and partially or totally excluded from their educational institution. Some of the children then become ‘social dropouts’ which has a direct effect on the public purse. As a response to this problem in North Manchester, Ezer LaYeled was established in April 2003 to help and support these children.
what we do
Ezer LaYeled provides assessments, advice, therapy, and advocacy for children who are struggling due to illness and/or weakness in their abilities to achieve. These children are often labelled as being DCD, ODD, ADHD or ASD/PDD etc.
Why choose to support us?
We have helped many children over the last 16 years including Avi. His mother, Shoshanah Cohen talks about the difference it has made to her son: “We appreciate the input Ezer Layeled’s staff have given Avi. There is a warm and positive atmosphere and Avi is very happy to go. He has made progress with his behaviour and social skills. These are very big achievements for Avi and have had a positive impact on him and our whole family. We thank you very much.”
We are a not-for-profit charity and rely heavily on the generosity of people and their donations to help as many children to reach their full potential as possible. We have no fixed or regular financial support and every £1 could help make a difference to the families who need our help, like Avi’s.
