“Towards Independent Living”
ALUT’s guiding principle is that normalized, community-based working and living arrangements are the optimal environment for people with autism. ALUT has designed unique models that emphasize members’ abilities, and not their disabilities. The Vocational Centers provide work and rehabilitation programs for members who are over 21. ALUT operates many such Centers between Carmiel in the north and Be’er Sheva in the south.
After assessing each member’s abilities, needs and interests, individual training programs are developed. Professional instructors work with the young adults in their workshops.
Additional Vocational Centers are urgently needed throughout the country.
