Ready, Set, Grow

We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Children are encouraged to wear masks throughout the session, and it’s okay if we’re still working towards that goal. Hand washing and helping to clean up will be part of our new routine to keep everyone safe. Also, in attempt to social distance, clear partitions will be used during seated table tasks and in our pretend play area, so that we can still encourage parallel play, curiosity, and engagement.

Early Intervention enrollment is not required for children to participate. Please contact Megan Kowalski for group registration and fee information.

Healing During the Seasons: An Evening of Support in Spring

​​​​​​The experience of grieving always feels like visiting a foreign place, feeling disoriented and isolated in the new reality of life without the person we loved.

Let’s come together virtually on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 7:30 PM CDT to learn alternative ways to mourn and grieve while we gain comfort from being together.

The evening will include setting intentions, wisdom from a grief educator, a community member reflecting on marking the first anniversary and poems of remembrance.

Upon completion of our formal program at 8:30pm, participants are invited to stay online for brief personal sharing and to learn more about our upcoming support groups.

This event is free of charge. Register today to receive the Zoom link to the program and additional grief and loss resources following the program. This program is generously supported by the Lauri S. Bauer Foundation for Sudden Loss. Presenters:

Rabbi Joseph S. Ozarowski, BCC is Rabbinic Counselor and Board-Certified Chaplain for JCFS Chicago. He is a prolific author and teacher and serves the patients and families at Skokie and Glenbrook Hospitals.

Dr. Nancy Wagner is the Superintendent of River Trails School District 26 in Mt. Prospect. She lost her beloved husband Alan in 2020. Nancy joined one of the grief support groups facilitated by JCFS Chicago and will share her grief journey.

Ready, Set, Grow

We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Children are encouraged to wear masks throughout the session, and it’s okay if we’re still working towards that goal. Hand washing and helping to clean up will be part of our new routine to keep everyone safe. Also, in attempt to social distance, clear partitions will be used during seated table tasks and in our pretend play area, so that we can still encourage parallel play, curiosity, and engagement.

Early Intervention enrollment is not required for children to participate. Please contact Megan Kowalski for group registration and fee information.

Ready, Set, Grow

We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Children are encouraged to wear masks throughout the session, and it’s okay if we’re still working towards that goal. Hand washing and helping to clean up will be part of our new routine to keep everyone safe. Also, in attempt to social distance, clear partitions will be used during seated table tasks and in our pretend play area, so that we can still encourage parallel play, curiosity, and engagement.

Early Intervention enrollment is not required for children to participate. Please contact Megan Kowalski for group registration and fee information.

Avodah 2021 Partners in Justice Celebration

AVODAH CHICAGO organizes the annual celebration to honor individuals who emulate our vision of a community in which members devote themselves to building a more just world. We are proud to honor two amazing local Jewish leaders this year:

ANGELIQUE POWER has been an outspoken leader and advocate for racial equity and social justice within the philanthropic community. As President of the Field Foundation of Illinois, she has transformed the way the Foundation approaches philanthropy by centering racial equity within their work.

ANNA YANKELEV is an alum of the Avodah Justice Fellowship. She has been at the forefront of the COVID response. As the Mitigation Chief of the Lake County Health Department, she has focused on both limiting the spread of the virus and reallocating food and resources to the highest-risk populations in the region.

GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!


Avodah is a national organization that strengthens the Jewish community’s fight against the causes and effects of poverty in the United States. Our mission is guided by the belief that Jewish leaders have the power to help change our country for the better. We train and support early career Jewish professionals with the tools, knowledge, and networks they need to contribute their skills and passion to advancing social justice across the country and deepen the fabric of our diverse Jewish Communities.

Ready, Set, Grow

We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Children are encouraged to wear masks throughout the session, and it’s okay if we’re still working towards that goal. Hand washing and helping to clean up will be part of our new routine to keep everyone safe. Also, in attempt to social distance, clear partitions will be used during seated table tasks and in our pretend play area, so that we can still encourage parallel play, curiosity, and engagement.

Early Intervention enrollment is not required for children to participate. Please contact Megan Kowalski for group registration and fee information.

Ready, Set, Grow

We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Children are encouraged to wear masks throughout the session, and it’s okay if we’re still working towards that goal. Hand washing and helping to clean up will be part of our new routine to keep everyone safe. Also, in attempt to social distance, clear partitions will be used during seated table tasks and in our pretend play area, so that we can still encourage parallel play, curiosity, and engagement.

Early Intervention enrollment is not required for children to participate. Please contact Megan Kowalski for group registration and fee information.

Social Superheroes

Looking for a fun way to learn social awareness, communication skills, and self-regulation? The Social Superhero Training Academy is open!

Practice these new social superhero powers by reading stories, playing games, making crafts, and more! This 8-week group will be offered in-person at our clinic!

This group is suggested for those ages 6-8, although it can be adjusted for older or younger children based on interest. Please contact Megan Kowalski for fee information.

Ready, Set, Grow

We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Children are encouraged to wear masks throughout the session, and it’s okay if we’re still working towards that goal. Hand washing and helping to clean up will be part of our new routine to keep everyone safe. Also, in attempt to social distance, clear partitions will be used during seated table tasks and in our pretend play area, so that we can still encourage parallel play, curiosity, and engagement.

Early Intervention enrollment is not required for children to participate. Please contact Megan Kowalski for group registration and fee information.

Social Superheroes

Looking for a fun way to learn social awareness, communication skills, and self-regulation? The Social Superhero Training Academy is open! In this speech-language pathologist-lead group, children will use Social Thinking Curriculum to learn to be flexible-thinking superheroes. They will learn to defeat cartoon characters who embody different social challenges such as Rock Brain, who makes people get stuck on their own ideas, Body Snatcher, who moves people’s bodies away from the group, and Topic Twistermeister, who makes people jump off topic. Practice these new social superhero powers by reading stories, playing games, making crafts, and more! This 8-week group will be offered in-person at our clinic!

This group is suggested for those ages 6-8, although it can be adjusted for older or younger children based on interest. Please contact Megan Kowalski for fee information.
