Educational Support Services
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 Support Services Director coordinates services to meet the needs of students who require specialized learning and those who require enrichment services. We have four full-time resource room instructors, including teachers trained in Judaic Studies/Hebrew, 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, and time management. Our ESS team works in conjunction with Southfield Public Schools to incorporate speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other support services.
Social Work Services
Farber Hebrew Day School has two full-time social workers assisting our students in the Early Childhood Center through High School. 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 implements 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 bi-monthly High School Advisory Program provides a forum for students to discuss sensitive topics with our advisory teachers and social workers including stress management, sexual harassment, online bullying, and appropriate social media use.
