Announcing the Jesse J. Kaplan School October “MOVER™ of the Month” Esther Greenfield!

Esther has made tremendous growth in becoming independent and mobile. She cruises the hallways using the Rifton Tram and can walk throughout the classroom with assistance to get to her favorite activities. She takes pride in her accomplishments – and so do we.  Thank you to the team of people who have helped Esther MOVE this year. Keep up the great work!

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