Orli Almog

As a parent of a child with special needs, I am constantly advocating for families with special needs children. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Child Development and a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT). In addition, I taught in elementary school for over 8 years. I am passionate about this field and will utilize a combination of my professional experience, education and personal experience to ensure your family’s needs are met.

Our agency specializes in helping families achieve high-quality respite care.

We Rock the Spectrum Agoura Hills–Helping Kids with Autism – Fox 11

We Rock The Spectrum – Agoura Hills provides joy & healing to kids on the autism spectrum.

The open play time on occupational therapy equipment enhances physical & emotional skills. “Our motto is finding a place where you never have to say I’m sorry,” says owner Dana Aghassi.

“All kids can come in and have fun and play…and not feel judged,” she adds.

Parents say it is life changing for them.

Yadira Zimmerman said it’s helped her previously non-verbal son learn how to speak.

“It’s allowed his personality to just blossom. He’s making friends. He’s playing with toys appropriate to him.”

My Brother Rocks The Spectrum Foundation

My Brother Rocks The Spectrum Foundation is our 501(c)3 (tax id #46-4393642) non-profit organization that helps families receive the funding they need to participate in our social skills/activity groups, classes, camps and more. This allows children to be able to use the specialized sensory swings and activities WRTS offers. We offer these groups to children and young adults from 2 to 18yrs of age.

Our mission is to provide all children with any ability or disability a place they can build friendships, keep active and learn to use their energy in their bodies in a productive environment. WRTS uses its equipment and activities to integrate children in this environment also through their Open Play program. We also receive funding from other state programs like the Regional Center, that provide one to one attendant care and other specialized services required to ensure all children can find the benefits of healthy play.

All funds donated to MBRTS are distributed to all of the WRTS locations Nationwide to complete our mission of giving families a community and,  “finally a place where you never have to say I’m sorry.”

Horsepower Therapeutic Riding

At Horsepower Therapeutic Riding we believe that the right approach to therapeutic riding is holistic; with a specific goal in mind. Every rider goes through a complete evaluation process, which includes setting a mutual rider-instructor goal. Based on the evaluation’s results and goals, a structured, personalized program is built and applied, intermediary steps are being followed, and adjustments are being made along the way. Our primary interest is Therapeutic Riding, with a focus on integrating riding instruction and therapeutic strategies, catering to the mentally and physically challenged. Through our unique approach, we are able to create meaningful improvements in the daily lives of the riders, rather than just teaching horse riding skills.
