Paramus—Miriam Skydell & Associates and BounceU of Paramus announce that they have partnered to provide Occupational Therapy services at BounceU of Paramus. This goal directed sensory-motor therapeutic experience is suitable for a wide range of children, including, but not limited to children with Autism, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Dysfunction, gross motor and motor planning difficulties, as well as children with social skills difficulties. The purpose of the program is to combine the incredible fun of Bounce U with the benefit of skill development.
Each group will have a maximum of eight children, a 2:1 staff to child ratio and will be run by an experienced Occupational Therapist. Additionally, the new program will offer a parent support group, which will run free of charge, simultaneously to the group.
“It is amazing to have access to the space and equipment available at BounceU as a medium to address the sensory and motor needs of so many children!! “ says Miriam Skydell, Founder and Director of Miriam Skydell and Associates. “Being able to add the social skills component in a dynamic, natural, fun environment makes this venture even more exciting!”
“It has always been my dream to offer parent support groups” says Skydell. “This is an ideal opportunity because a group of 8 parents who have kids of similar age range and challenges will converge in one spot at the same time!”
‘There is a real need in Bergen County for activities that cater to children with a range of difficulties.” I am excited to help fill this need at BounceU, which is a place where kids always have a blast,” says Jon Horwich, Owner of BounceU Paramus.
