Educational Support and Inclusion Specialists | Title I Teachers | Alienu Family Resource Center

Supplemental Services are designed to help students deal with the demands of a dual curriculum that is characteristic of Jewish High Schools.  Our typical student has been battling to keep afloat in classes that may feel both over stimulating and overwhelming.

The Educational Support and Inclusion Program at YULA provides the following unique services:

  • On-campus weekly meetings with students to discuss and facilitate academic issues
  • Ongoing communication and advocacy with faculty and administration
  • Support for students’ individual learning struggles and communication with parents
  • Academic management of services for students with psycho-educational diagnoses and recommendations (private or title one).  Development and coordination of appropriate accommodations and in specific cases modifications,  An intervention plan is created for each student’s unique learning profile (informal 504 plan)
  • Organization of assignments, materials, and time management with students
  • Consultation with College Counselors regarding SAT and ACT application services for students with disabilities
Please contact Director of General Studies Bluma Drebin (bdrebin@yula.org) if you would like your child to receive academic support or services.
