We are excited to move forward in the new year under a new name! Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey is now Pillar Care Continuum! We have also changed the names of our schools from Horizon Elementary School and Horizon High School to Pillar Elementary School and Pillar High School.
The Pillar name reflects all of the key groups – our families, staff members and volunteers at all levels – who all work together to support our students and participants everyday.
For our last meeting of the Fall / Winter session of JUMPSTART! (Early Intervention Therapeutic Play Group) therapists focused on the children’s sensory integration needs. Children in early intervention often have difficulty aligning their body senses, specifically their vestibular system. This sensory system provides the leading contribution to the sense of balance and spatial orientation for the purpose of coordinating movement with balance. In this session therapists provided specific movement experiences coupled with auditory and visual input to help support all underlying functioning. Special thanks to all of our Early Intervention families for another amazing playgroup!
