Samuel and Fay 1cropJewish children with special learning needs thrive at The Emanuel, as do their parents. We have experience in successfully guiding children with Autism, Tourettes Syndrome, and Fragile X, to B’nai Mitzvah celebrations.

  • Our Resource Room teachers evaluate each child’s learning style to effectively give extra help as needed.
  • Older students assist as personal aides, to enable most children to mainstream into regular classes.
  • We promote Family program participation, so both children and parents experience acceptance as valued members of The Emanuel community.

We offer Unified Theater activities for older students with special needs to explore and lead in theater and the arts. If you would like your child to attend or would like more information on current offerings, please contact the religious school office: or 860-233-2774.

USY Shelanu, meaning Our USY, is the first Conservative Movement Jewish youth group serving this population in Connecticut. Click here for more about this group.

Special learning needs should be discussed with our Religious School Principal so an appropriate individual plan is designed.
