Inclusion By Design Makes Us Different
Everything we do at SINAI is individualized, including our unique approach to inclusion, which we call Inclusion by Design®.
Each of our schools is embedded within a mainstream partner school. SINAI students are full members of their partner school communities, and we thoughtfully design each child’s inclusion experience to maximize his or her strengths. Inclusion means something different for every child.
Parents partner with our administrators and teachers to define their child’s academic goals and consider the myriad of inclusion opportunities within the school. These may include non-academic activities offered by the partner school such as recess, lunch, Tefillah, gym, music, sports teams, and clubs. For many SINAI students, after careful planning and supports are in place, they may be integrated into partner school academic classes.
The frequent high fives in the hallways from TABC boys make S feel like just one of the guys — an amazing experience for someone who has so often in his life felt on the fringes.
