Tikvah Center

The Tikvah Center is dedicated to giving children on the autism spectrum the opportunity to reach their highest potential in a nurturing, child-centered environment with an individually designed program of learning. Additionally, as part of the Beth David community, our students will be taught to embrace the wisdom and faith of Judaism.

Our program for children 5-10 years old, promotes growth and development in each child's academic, social-emotional, behavioral, ethical, and spiritual domain. Our specially trained teachers use a wide range of highly individualized, research-based intervention strategies to facilitate language acquisition, behavioral skills, and independence. The hope is that our program will build a bridge for our students to achieve inclusion in a typical classroom setting.

Parents' Association (PA)

The goal of the PA is to provide enrichment programs for children, teachers and classrooms through fundraising activities and community participation. The Parents' Association is a great way for parents in the Beth David community to socialize and get involved in their children's education. All Beth David families, including Synagogue, ECC, Day School, Tikvah and Religious School, are welcome to join the PA.

For more information or to join the PA,  email Barbara Latham, PA Chair, at bbrulatham@aol.com.
