MOVER of the Month - March 2024

MOVER of the Month - March 2024

Congratulations to Siobhan Nordland, our Rockland BOCES Jesse J. Kaplan School “MOVER of the Month” for March. “Siobhan has made great strides in activities such as standing endurance during MOVE events, ambulating in the hallways to and from specials and participating in classroom activities in a compass chair,” says Physical Therapist Nigi Varughese. “ The use of the TRAM has allowed Siobhan to explore all areas of her education. While in the TRAM, Siobhan participates in Smartboard activities such as choosing a favorite song, participating in circle time activities and interacting with her classmates while standing. We are all so proud of Siobhan’s accomplishments in the MOVE program!”

Kaplan’s MOVE™ (Mobility Opportunities via Education) 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™.
