Whole Community Inclusion is offering a two-day training that will provide information about understanding different types of learning challenges and resources to create accommodations and modifications for children of all abilities as they reach this significant milestone. Experienced educators will share real life examples of successful adaptations for trope, prayer learning and working on D’vrei Torah.
