Does Birthright Israel make accommodations for individuals with medical and/or accessibility/special needs?
Every round there are a number of medical and accessibility/special needs programs offered. Not all programs are offered in every round of trips. These include but are not limited to: Trips for those with developmental challenges, physical challenges, ASL trips, IBD and Chrones, etc. These trips can be viewed under THE TRIP - Accessibility/Special Needs Programs. Additionally there may be opportunities to integrate individuals with medical or accessibility/special needs onto other programs where possible, sometimes with the assistance of an aide if necessary. Your Trip Organizer will be able to tell you if these options are available to you.
All of your medical and accessibility/special needs should be discussed thoroughly with your Trip Organizer prior to accepting a trip. Your Trip Organizer will be able to provide you with information regarding their trip itineraries and whom they are best suited to.
