S-miles is an exclusive unique center in Lebanon and the MENA region that offers, research based therapeutic activities for mild to moderate special needs and learning difficulties, targeting both leisure and intervention purposes simultaneously. It is fun and therapeutic at the same time.

 

S-miles is founded based on the following:

-   Availability of centers and institutions for severe cases, yet the lack of services for individual with mild to moderate cases,-   Regular coaches within a large group of individuals in their sessions are not qualified or equipped to reach to the specific needs and individual pace of those children,-   Unfortunately, children having special cases spend there time on “one on one” therapy sessions, and have very scarce opportunities to enjoy fun activities as their regular peers,-   Lack of participation in  fun activities within a group leads children to feel different and neglected,-   Lack of participation in age related fun activities might lead to refusal of other therapies and regression

 

Due to all the above and based on research of what is used abroad (Europe, US & Canada) regarding the benefits of different therapeutic activities in relation with specific cases,  S-miles established the 1st center in Lebanon and the region that offers activities as therapies.
