MUHSEN Weekend School

The Muhsen Weekend School project is the first of its kind, offering amazing educational experiences for children with special needs.

All programs have modified books on stories of the Prophets, which are adapted to the child’s learning level, and Quran modules that allow students to memorize Quran in an engaging way.

MUHSEN’s Weekend Schools

MUHSEN weekend school classrooms include individuals with different disabilities, ages, and learning abilities that all come together for the sake of Allah and sense of belonging in their community.

Students with special needs are given individualized lesson plans that focus on their needs, but also provide them the opportunity to learn and achieve success in their Deen.

Each student is provided support tailored to individual needs. All TAs in MUHSEN classrooms are highly trained in educational and behavioral strategies.

Alhamdulilah, I am so very pleased with the Muhsen weekend school and grateful for the opportunity provided for my son Zakariya. I am truly delighted with how he is embraced, nurtured, and supported by the staff and teachers. He is excited to go to Sunday School and learns new things each day. Maa shaa Allah he has learned how to perform wudu, memorized various surahs and dua’a, and made Muslim friends. The staff at Orland Park is amazing and they are earning Jannat-ul-Firdaus, In shaa Allah.
