Why "Pushing In" Benefits All Learners

Support Services for diverse learners, such as SETSS (Special Education Teacher Support Service) Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Counseling, are invaluable resources that can change the way a mainstream classroom accommodates students with disabilities.

Students who require this type of related services receive a legal document called an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) from their local education agencies, which dictates how often students should receive each therapy and for how long. Where the session takes place, however, can make a world of difference.

Special To The Jewish Week

‘We should make our school more like camp” has been a popular refrain lately.

The off-season is a time for camp memories, keeping up with camp friends, and generally biding one’s time until the next summer.
