Rockland BOCES is proud to recognize Shaindel (Shaindy) Shain as the Jesse J. Kaplan School “MOVER of the Month” for December!  Shaindy has grown comfortable and confident using a gait trainer, Rifton Activity Chair and prone stander several times each day. She is walking and sitting taller and continues to improve her MOVE positioning. Teachers and fellow students may even catch a smile as Shaindy navigates the Kaplan hallways and classrooms.

Our Kaplan Family is proud of Shaindy and her journey toward independence. She demonstrates great patience, persistence and has much to smile about.  Keep MOVING, Shaindy!

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™.
