The Horizon School and Horizon High School alternate each month, offering free physiatry clinics to their students. The clinics are lead by Dr. Jenfu Cheng, from Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside. Dr. Cheng has 11 years of experience, and practices physical medicine and specializes in pediatric rehabilitation medicine. He works very closely with each school’s therapy team to address any needs or concern the therapy team or the students family may have. He carefully evaluates each student during the clinic and will often give referral recommendations to specialists, as well as writes prescriptions for durable medical equipment or orthotics as needed. Dr. Cheng has become a part of the collaborative team at both schools, helping the students reach their maximum potential. (Students can be signed up for the medical clinic by contacting the schools therapy coordinator. )
On October 25, volunteers from Seton Hall University’s Service on Saturdays program came out to help host a fun event for our group home consumers. The group made fun Halloween masks, tried on costumes and played games involving pumpkins. Consumers also ate a delicious pizza lunch, which was provided. Thanks so much to SHU’s Division of Volunteer Efforts for this fun day!
