FANWOOD, NJ - The Arthur L. Johnson High School Crusader Football Team visited First Children’s School Thursday. Members of the Crusader Football Team spent time in various classrooms and participated in a multitude of activities with students and teachers.
“The football program was thrilled to be able to assist with the daily routines and to participate in activities held at the First Children’s School. It was fun watching the high school student athletes as they interacted with the children, and I think both groups not only enjoyed the experience, but learned a lot while doing it,” said Anthony DelConte, Head Football Coach.
According to school officials, First Children’s School is a stepping off point for children who need highly specialized educational services for some period of time in their lives. First Children’s services extend into the home districts of students with special needs where they are invited to work with faculty and administration to assure that children with special needs get cutting-edge services in their home schools.
Teachers, aides and therapists even deliver services in the homes of the children they serve. First Children partners with districts and other providers like Children’s Specialized Hospital and Eden Autism Services to make sure that the children receive the services they need.
