Programs of Sulam, Inc., are designed for students with documented evidence of learning differences who wish to participate in the dual curriculum and Jewish community environment offered in a Jewish day school.
Sulam, Inc. strives to support children with diverse learning needs through highly individualized academic plans that include small group instruction, mainstreaming experiences and/or one-to-one support.
Most of our students display one or more of the following learning challenges: specific learning disabilities, attention issues, twice exceptional (GTLD), emotional and behavioral challenges, social skills deficits, language delays, and sensory-motor weaknesses.
Sulam, Inc. does not offer programming for students with severe to profound mental retardation or with emotional disabilities which require specialized supports and interventions.
Sulam’s multidisciplinary Admissions and Placement Committee (APC) is comprised of special educators, a clinical psychologist, and related service providers, including a speech/language pathologist and an occupational therapist. Admissions decisions are made on a case by case basis, using information obtained from a review of assessments, student observations, and parent, teacher and therapist interviews. Upon receipt of a new student application, the admissions process requires approximately two months. This time frame provides the APC sufficient time to make an informed decision in the best interest of each student.
