A Day in the Life

Beit Daniella runs from 8:00-3:00, five days a week. The students’ first responsibility is to care for the primary needs of the therapeutic dogs in the kennel - cleaning, feeding, checking on their health, and walking them to get much-needed fresh air and exercise. The rest of the morning is dedicated to studies. Aimed at building confidence and closing knowledge gaps incurred by illness, hospitalization, and/or the inability to function, our individualized study program takes place in small groups and one-on-one. On a rotation, students prepare breakfast and lunch, thus acquiring basic life skills, and healthy attitudes to food and nutrition while building relationships with staff members.  After lunch, the schedule varies, with each day focusing on a different therapeutic intervention group; horseback riding, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), art therapy, dog training, and life skills. At the end of the day, the students come together for a daily wrap-up to summarize the day and raise awareness of successes and challenges encountered.
