Congratulations to our Jesse J. Kaplan School January MOVER of the Month Medha Tantri! Medha is on the MOVE, working hard in and out of the classroom. Throughout the day she can be seen walking the hallways during therapy and using the Rifton tram for support. In the classroom, Medha is gaining stability while sitting and enjoys sensory activities that develop her fine motor skills.

Thank you to everyone who has helped Medha MOVE. We are so proud of her progress.

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 more fulfilling lives. For some, this might be learning to hold their own cup; for others it might be learning to walk independently to explore their environment.

Contact Rockland BOCES’ Jesse J. Kaplan School at (845) 627-4797 to learn how MOVE™ can help someone in your life. Every child deserves the chance to MOVE™!
