Declaration of Accessibility by "Lotus Guidance for Change"

We have invested a great deal of effort to make "Lotus Guidance for Change" accessible because an accessible site enables people with different disabilities (who have special needs) to surf and use the internet easily just like everybody else, without feeling that they are different from others, so they can enjoy the wide range of services we provide for self-empowerment such as life coaching, NLP, dialogue skills and mediation.. Our philosophy in "Lotus Guidance for Change" is to regard, with the utmost of importance, the acceptance of differences, and of people with special needs, in order to create a just society. We are proud to be numbered among the first sites in Israel to have made a significant investment in making our site accessible and to set an example for other businesses (on the same scale) that it's both important and possible to make their sites accessible.
