Congratulations to our first Rockland BOCES Jesse J. Kaplan School “MOVER of the Month” for 2020 – Aradia “Dia” Serra-Vandermark! Propelled by her big personality, Dia has made astronomical gains in the MOVE™ program.  She took her first independent steps using the gait trainer and now stands in the classroom, playing with her “cause and effect” toys. Whenever she is on the move, Dia beams with pride.

Through her involvement with the MOVE™ program, Dia has exceeded our expectations by meeting and exceeding her goals. Keep up the great work Dia. We are so very proud of you! 

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™.
