Do you know a child with special needs who would thrive in a Jewish education setting with innovative programming, small classes and plenty of individualized attention? Gateways: Access to Jewish Education of Boston is accepting applications for students in its Jewish Education Programs for the 2012-2013 school year!
Gateways, Boston's central address for Jewish special education, supports children's learning in a number of settings - including day schools, congregational religious schools and Jewish preschools. But for those students who need an alternative, there's the Gateways Jewish Education Programs, which include a free-standing Sunday school, b'nei mitzvah program, and youth group designed to meet the needs of children and teens with a range of disabilities and learning styles.
Gateways Jewish Education Programs deliver a dynamic Jewish education. Special education teachers utilize visual supports and differentiated instruction in a multisensory curriculum that includes Jewish holidays, Bible stories, Hebrew, Jewish culture and traditions. Technology, music and creative arts are intertwined throughout each day and highly trained teen aides or adult tutors provide 1:1 support to each student. Families are invited to choose from:
- Sunday Program for students ages 4-18
- B'nei Mitzvah Program for students who will become bar/bat mitzvah in the next 2 years
- Mitzvah Mensches Teen Youth Group for students ages 13-17
