MOVER of the Month – January 2024
Congratulations to Leslie Velasquez-Zamora — our Rockland BOCES Jesse J. Kaplan School “MOVER of the Month” for January AND first in 2024! With the help of our assistive equipment, Leslie is able to take part (and joy) in classroom activities such as circle time and morning meetings.
"She uses an activity chair for seated positioning, a gait trainer to take steps forward and a prone stander to help hold herself up," said Physical Therapist Lori Guarascio. Demonstrated by excited stepping motions, Leslie also loves listening to music and playing with adapted toys. We are so BOCES proud of her progress. Keep up the great work!
Kaplan’s MOVE™ program combines therapy and education to teach children with physical disabilities and complex needs the functional skills of sitting, standing and walking. MOVE™ aims to give children an opportunity to lead more independent and fulfilling lives. Every child deserves the right to MOVE™.
