Congratulations to our Jesse J. Kaplan School March MOVER of the Month – Andy Saquicela. Andy has been working very hard on his physical activities and and learning all the right MOVEs™! His favorite activity is riding the Rifton tram where he can feel the sensation of walking. He is an enthusiastic spectator as he uses the Somatron mat to stretch out his body or while sitting upright in the Positioning (P) Pod.

Andy’s pride in his accomplishments shows through his infectious smile. We, too, are proud of his progress and positive attitude. Keep up the great work Andy!

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™!
