ELIZABETH, NJ - Trinitas Children’s Therapy Services has announced a partnership with The Deron School in Union and Montclair to offer a series of free Early Intervention workshops for children with specialized needs. The workshops will help parents identify developmental progress in their children. Through the workshops offered at the Deron School’s location at 1140 Commerce St. in Union, parents can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of physical, occupational, and speech therapists and other professionals associated with both Deron and Trinitas Children’s Therapy Services.
“This workshop program is dedicated to identifying developmental progress issues and then applying early intervention methods to help parents bring their children along in very effective ways. We give parents valuable tools that contribute to their day to day job as parents. Our goal is to help parents feel more assured and capable of their ability to help their child in positive ways,” says Carole Soricelli, director of Trinitas Children’s Therapy Services.
The structured workshops that are run by experienced professionals start with an understanding of a child’s behavior. Within the workshop setting, physical, occupational, and speech therapists present guidance for parents into important developmental milestones in speech and language, sensory processing, fine and gross motor skills, as well as coping strategies for their children. Behavioral specialists, certified teachers of students with disabilities, and social workers complete the full range of experts involved in this Early Intervention Workshop series.
“Over the course of the four-part weekly workshop series, parents can learn from the superior expertise of the workshop facilitators who encourage discussion of themes presented in each session. These themes include recognizing developmental milestones and using therapeutic strategies within a child’s daily routine; addressing motor, language, social and behavioral concerns, and assuring a safe environment for your child,” explains Kenneth Alter, director of The Deron I School.
