Roselle Park, NJ: "Sensory Bounce Therapy" for kids with autism/ADHD coming to schools

Dec 3, 2013, Roselle Park (NJ) News: Sensory Bounce Therapy For Special Needs Children Coming To Roselle Park http://www.roselleparknews.org/sensory-bounce-therapy-for-special-needs-children-coming-to-roselle-park/ A program dedicated to providing occupational therapy to children with special needs is set to start next year at Pump It Up. Sensory Bounce Therapy, founded by Miriam Skydell, started in Paramus four years ago and has expanded to 15 locations from Connecticut to Florida. In addition to the program coming to Roselle Park, the only one in the Union County area, Sensory Bounce is set to open in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles in the coming months. Designed to help children with autism, ADHD, as well as children with motor and/or social difficulties that interfere with their ability to function in their environment, Sensory Bounce offers a fun, practical, and functional program that is a complement to ABA (applied behavior analysis) therapy. … Sensory Bounce also runs a parent support group, often led by a social worker and takes place in a private room at the same time that children are at play. The support group is a way for parents to meet other parents, network, share common struggles, and gain support from each other.
