Gateways is proud to partner with Behrman House Publishers to publish a haggadah for children with special needs. The Gateways Haggadah utilizes over 150 picture communication symbols developed by Mayer-Johnson, the leading creator of symbol-adapted special education materials that assist individuals in overcoming speech, language and learning challenges. In addition to picture symbols for blessings and songs, step-by-step photographs are also used to illustrate what to do throughout the Seder.
While meant for children with special needs, the haggadah is also perfect for early readers and pre-readers. (Gateways: Access to Jewish Education is based in Newton and works to include children of ALL abilities in Jewish education)
