P’TACH: Jewish Special Education

7 Jul

This week I finished editing an inspirational video (click HERE to view) I produced for P’TACH – a New York-based non-profit organization that provides solutions for Jewish students with learning differences. P’TACH (Parents for Torah for all Children) uses smaller classes, specially-trained teachers, and cutting edge learning tools to help learning challenged children achieve success. To build the narrative spine for my video, I interviewed school psychologists, program coordinators, parents, teachers, and students at four P’TACH sites including Flatbush (Brooklyn), Washington Heights (Manhattan), and Holliswood (Queens). While producing this video for P’TACH, I was touched by the dedication of its teachers that transformed failing, discouraged students into confident, successful young adults.
