Samuel and Fay 1cropJewish children with special learning needs thrive at The Emanuel, as do their parents. We have experience in successfully guiding children with Autism, Tourettes Syndrome, and Fragile X, to B’nai Mitzvah celebrations.

  • Our Resource Room teachers evaluate each child’s learning style to effectively give extra help as needed
  • Older students as a personal aide enable most children to be mainstreamed into regular classes.
  • Family program participation, so both children and parents experience acceptance as valued members of The Emanuel community.

Special learning needs should be discussed with our Religious School Principal so an appropriate individual plan is designed

We offer Unified Theater activities for older students with special needs to explore and lead in theater and the arts. If you would like your child to attend or would like more information on this year’s offering,  please contact the religious school office by email  at school@emanuelsynaogue.org or by calling 860-233-2774.
