Every child should know the joy of success — both in and out of the classroom.
For some children, that means extra attention and resources beyond the standard curriculum. Every division of Yeshiva Beth Yehudah is equipped with skilled educators who provide support to children in both secular and Judaic studies — making sure every child receives an education tailored to their needs...and feels like a winner.
Our Learning Centers are staffed exclusively with experienced teachers who hold Masters degrees in special education. Many of our faculty also have additional, high-level training in specific areas integral to our students’ continued growth.
Reading and writing are the foundation of any learning — in both Jewish and secular subjects. Our preschool & elementary schools employ full-time reading specialists to support children who need extra help with English and Hebrew kriah.
Our goal is always the same: to see your child flourish. To that end, we employ experienced speech-language pathologists and occupational, physical and ABA therapists, as well as a social worker and/or guidance counselor in every division. Our dedicated learning center and occupational therapy spaces are designed to provide every student with the extra help they need.
