JUMPSTART!

For the last JUMPSTART! Therapeutic Playgroup session of the spring season, our friends jumped in Horizon Elementary School’s indoor 92-degree aquatic therapy pool for a fun and relaxing final playgroup. In this session Horizon therapists taught parents how to safely handle their child in a water environment, while encouraging various position changes that are relevant to swimming and water safety. Movement in the warm water of the aquatic therapy pool addresses fine motor, gross motor, increased vocalization, and social interaction skills. This allowed the children to experience physical freedom of movement in a supportive, buoyant environment. Special thanks to all of our Early Intervention families for another spectacular playgroup!

CPNJ’s Horizon Elementary School is set to host an abbreviated summer session of its JUMPSTART! Early Intervention Therapeutic Playgroup! Enrollment is now open.
