This summer, in partnership with Avi Chai, we are excited to bring our award winning training and coaching program to day schools and yeshivas in NY and NJ. Our programs transform educators’ confidence and skills in teaching a range of students, especially those with academic, social or behavioral challenges.

We are grateful to Avi Chai for sponsoring our 4-day Learning Lenses courses this summer that will take faculty on a deep dive into the core of our curriculum.
Neurodevelopmental Lens: A neuro-developmental understanding of learning including topics such as attention, memory, social skills, language, higher order thinking and sequencing.
Ecological Lens: the ways in which the child’s home life, classroom culture and community impact their experience.
Temperamental Lens: identifying, understanding and celebrating components of a child’s innate personality.
Collaborative Problem Solving: a process for collaborating with students to jointly solve problems that are affecting school performance.
As faculty are trained they learn about a framework for enhancing understanding of their student’s strengths and challenges and emerge with a deeper understanding of learning and behavior and a new shared language. They also acquire a robust tool-kit of strategies, and a hopeful stance in reaching a range of students, including those who struggle.
