Keshet Day School provides education in specially adapted classes designed to meet students' specific educational needs.
The Keshet Day Schools have achieved a national reputation as an outstanding program for children with developmental disabilities.
When possible, students are integrated into host site's classes.
Both academic and recreational integrated opportunities are based on individual's needs and abilities.
Keshet students spend a large part of their day with the typically developing students of these schools.
Educational programs are tailored to each child's personal abilities as prescribed in an individual curriculum.
Social workers, psychologists and an integration coordinator work with teachers, aides and students.
A specialist works with children who use computerized talking devices to speak, and also trains staff to enhance the students' communication skills.
In addition, on-site occupational, physical and speech therapists work with those children needing these services.
Several of our students are able to integrate into academic classes while some are integrated into art, music and physical education.
All students are fully integrated for lunch and recess.
