Learning Resources

Learning Resource at Perelman offers an individualized program of supplementary academic services to students.

Programs are designed according to each student’s learning style, with carefully developed goals and specific instruction.
Lessons are scheduled with certified learning specialists either one-on-one or in small groups of students with similar needs. Learning specialists offer support in both the resource room and the mainstream classroom as needed. Our highly successful program provides students with study and organizational techniques, as well as skills to develop written and verbal expression, reading comprehension, and decoding mathematics.

Our sensitive, knowledgeable specialists communicate regularly with the students’ teachers and parents to coordinate lessons and ensure the success of each child.

OROT Program

OROT, which means “lights” in Hebrew, is a community-sponsored organization that educates children in Jewish day schools across greater Philadelphia whose needs cannot be met by typical learning support programs.

Each OROT student receives an individualized curriculum prepared by educators from both OROT and Perelman who collaborate to help maximize the potential of each student.

In OROT, students’ success is measured by goals established for their individual learning styles. Whenever possible, OROT teachers incorporate topics from the mainstream classroom into lessons so students feels included and integrated with their peers. OROT classes for younger children concentrate on reading, writing, math, listening skills and organizational skills. A modified Jewish studies curriculum is offered to all students.

OROT educates children with a variety of learning challenges and diagnoses including those with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, Down Syndrome and behavioral disorders. OROT serves students at both Perelman campuses and at other Jewish day schools across denominational lines.
