To hear the voices of the children and families that we serve as they strive to achieve their full potential for independence, productivity, and inclusion in the community. The high standard and quality of care displayed by all of our staff is achieved through their expertise and ability to hear, and learn from, those who they serve.


Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices was founded in 1998 by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, Ph.D., M.B.A., in response to the growing need in the New York metropolitan area's education system for programs that effectively fill the learning and emotional requirements of children with autism.

Today, our school and community-based educational and therapeutic programs serve over 1,000 individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other related disabilities, ranging from newborns to adults, and hailing from all five boroughs of New York City.
