Max smiling at the cameraWe’re thrilled to announce the Rockland BOCES Jesse J. Kaplan School “MOVER™ of the Month” for June!  Maximus Pisklo has made tremendous progress since first participating in the MOVE program in 2016. He loves being social and engages with his environment and people around him. Max is often seen walking the hallway with his gait trainer, waving to those passing by. He always takes great pride in being more independent. We are so proud of his accomplishments!

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.
