Educational Support Services at Farber
We look forward to supporting your student on their educational journey!
Farber Hebrew Day School is committed to ensuring a rigorous academic program that fits the learning needs of all of our students. Our Educational Service Support Director coordinates services to meet the needs of students who require specialized learning and those who require enrichment services. Farber Hebrew Day School offers a half time teacher that works specifically with our Early Childhood Center staff and students to help identify and address potential academic or social concerns. Additionally, we have three full-time resource room instructors, including teachers trained in Judaic Studies/Hebrew support to provide support services across all age groups and subjects. With a fully operational department, we are able to retain students who might otherwise had to leave a challenging dual curriculum environment.
Farber Hebrew Day School Support Services include observation, accommodations, modification, strength building, study skills, time management. Our ESS team works in conjunction with Southfield Public Schools to incorporate speech, physical therapy, occupational therapy and other support services.
Social Work Services
Farber Hebrew Day School has two full-time social workers assisting ECC through High School students through the ESS Department. Our social workers offer age-appropriate programs for students that address issues that students face at various developmental stages including team building skills, role playing and group activity social skills. Farber Hebrew Day School recently implemented the Safety Kid Program developed by Magen Yeladim International and spearheaded by our social workers, to prevent abuse in the school, at home and in partner relationships. Our weekly High School Advisory Program provides a forum for students to discuss sensitive topics with advisory teachers and our social workers including stress management, sexual harassment, online bullying and appropriate social media use.
