About Us

The PTACH program at Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin Elementary and High School takes a holistic approach to educating students with learning differences. Curriculum and instruction are designed to address the academic, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of a struggling student within the context of a mainstream Yeshiva.

Using a strength-based-approach, ample remediation, and accommodation, Talmidim are consistently challenged to surpass their perceived expectations of accomplishment. With a moral imperative of the least restrictive environment, Talmidim are afforded the opportunity to participate in mainstream classes and all relevant school activities with the necessary support.
