The Mandell Berman Fund for Research on Children with Disabilities

Established at the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute in 1999 by Mandell Berman of Detroit, Michigan, the Mandell Berman Fund for Research on Children with Disabilities enhances and promotes the educational, health, and social well-being of children with special needs and their families, through research that improves service delivery, program planning and implementation, and policy development.
 
The Berman Fund’s support allows the Institute to significantly expand its overall impact, placing it at the forefront of research on children with disabilities.  This partnership has improved the lives of children with disabilities and their families in Israel by:

  • Making the needs of children with disabilities a high priority for government and civil society
  • Expanding educational and inclusion opportunities within school systems
  • Increasing attention to ADHD and other neglected or inadequately addressed disabilities
  • Improving service delivery and coordination through on-going evaluation
  • Raising awareness of the needs of children with disabilities among Arab Israelis and other disadvantaged groups

The commitment of the Berman Fund has enabled the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute to make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.
