Special Needs

Inclusion is a fundamental principle of Reform Judaism and Congregation B’nai Shalom.

Our educational programs and faculty embrace and support all learners and provide individualized services for children with special needs.

Through the generosity of the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts, we have extended the program to include a Learning Specialist. The Learning Specialist will be communicating with families to better understand children’s learning needs and managing those support services throughout the year. The Learning Specialist will also be working closely with our Religious School Educators, training them to best address the variety of learning styles of our students.  We also provide Madrichim and Tutors to provide one-on-one Hebrew instruction to the students who would benefit. We are proud of the progress made and our ability to provide the best educational environment for all of our learners!
