Support Special Education at TA!

LAMDEINU: The Center for Academic Resources and Enrichment @ TA is Talmudical Academy’s division for special education services.

TA takes great pride in our commitment to an educational model that addresses the individual needs of every student. Our goal has always been to provide tools for each student to grow and thrive in his learning and Yiddishkeit.

LAMDEINU is led by Mrs. Rivky Danziger in our Lower School, and Rabbi Zev Schwartz in our Middle School. LAMDEINU provides two full-time, and three part-time Special Education Teachers, along with one Instructional Assistant, who service dozens of TA students on a daily basis. Additionally, SHEMESH employed support staff include an Instructional Coach, Executive Functioning Coach, an Early Childhood Special Education Consultant, and a Reading Specialist.

LAMDEINU provides a self-contained classroom, in both Lower School and Middle School, servicing students who benefit from instruction tailored to their individual needs, with a low student to teacher ratio. The students have access to modified grade-level programs as well as intervention programs in Reading and Math as necessary. Students in the program are fully included in the General Education classroom for all social opportunities and are integrated for learning opportunities as it becomes appropriate. A number of students who were part of this program in previous years have already been fully integrated into mainstream classrooms.
