The Sunday Program offers a thematic Jewish education curriculum to students ages 5-18 who benefit from highly structured programming, individualized attention and small class sizes. Special education teachers utilize visual supports and differentiated instruction to present a multisensory curriculum that includes Jewish holidays, Torah stories, and Hebrew, as well as Jewish culture and traditions. Creative arts and music are included each week. All students receive one-to-one support from teen aides who receive weekly training in working with children with special needs.
Classes take place on Sundays from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. and from noon to 1:30 p.m., depending on class assignment. All classes take place at 60 Stein Circle in Newton (Solomon Schechter Day School, Lower School).
