SINAI Elementary at Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy

SINAI Elementary at Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy (JKHA) is located in Livingston, New Jersey. We are a special education school providing highly individualized programming and specialized therapeutic services to meet the specific needs of each of our students. Our professional staff supports the student and family in all areas including coordinating as appropriate with outside providers. 

SINAI at JKHA serves Elementary and Middle School students in Grades 1-8 who have a wide range of developmental, intellectual, and complex learning disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder, social/emotional disorders, and cognitive disabilities. Students are grouped into multi-graded classes according to their social, academic, and emotional profiles to create appropriate peer groups.

A typical SINAI class at JKHA averages between 5-9 students, with 2-3 credentialed teachers. The entire class works together on community building and social skills. For academic learning, children work in even smaller groups or one-on-one with a teacher, based on their individual learning needs in each subject. We teach to each individual child’s strengths, and use a multi-sensory approach to provide our students with different ways to learn information that might be challenging to them.

SINAI students are full members of the JKHA student community—traveling on the bus together, eating lunch together, playing at recess and gym together, participating in school assemblies together, and often joining their peers in JKHA’s academic classes.
