Community Needs Assessment

Matan works with stakeholders across organizations in a particular community or region in order to understand the inner workings of that community, their priorities, the local expertise that exists and the current challenges to inclusion. Matan staff produces a report and maintains ongoing communication until the community’s goals are set and “next steps” are in place.

Observations and Support

Matan staff members observe children, classes and staff in order to provide recommendations to support inclusion in formal and informal educational programs as a whole.

What People Are Saying About Matan

  • Matan met with both lay and professional leaders in our community and, in a very short amount of time, understood the lay of the land and the culture of our particular community. What they were able to achieve in just a few days…No cost, low cost as well as things to invest in – short term, long term.
