The inclusion of people with disabilities is a high priority in Israel. National initiatives and reforms are currently striving to meet the health care, social, and economic needs of people of all ages with disabilities, and their families, both in regular times and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
MJB’s Research Team on Disabilities is playing a leading role in assisting these efforts to promote inclusion and integration of people with disabilities into Israeli society.
The goal of this review is to inform the Disabilities Administration about the community-based social services available in various countries for people with disabilities aged 18 and over in six areas: (1) personal assistance and support; (2) promotion of independence in activities of daily living (ADL) and in instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs); (3) leisure activities; (4) assistive technology; (5) sexuality, couple relations, and parenting; (6) services for informal caregivers. The review presents information conducive to decision-making on the development and improvement of community-based social services for people with disabilities in Israel.
The goals of this study were: to characterize the non-exercising population; to examine the reasons for unexercised eligibility for rehabilitation and mobility devices; and to evaluate the eligibility approval process for rehabilitation and mobility devices.
The goal of the learning process was to map the existing knowledge in two areas: 1. The factors that promote the acquisition and preservation of digital literacy among people with disabilities. 2. Training and learning methods used in Israel and abroad that have been effective in developing digital literacy among people with disabilities.
The goal of this study is to provide policy makers, professionals, researchers, activists, the media, and the public at large with information on the digital literacy of people with disabilities in Israel and their use of digital technologies, compared with people without disabilities.
