The Norman A. Bleshman Regional Day School serves severely, multiply disabled students ages three through twenty-one years of age. Our comprehensive school offers an academic/functional/ career-based curriculum with an intensive therapy program that includes Occupational, Speech, and Physical Therapies. A key component of our program includes offering an integrated approach in instruction and therapies. The Bleshman School also offers very specialized preschool programming, which focuses on a curriculum from Curiosity Corner as well as fosters the integrated therapy model.

One of our newer initiatives has been the development of our in-house Career Awareness Center, which is staffed with two individuals, a Workplace Readiness Facilitator and an Occupational Therapist. The Center focuses on an "experiential" model which is closely aligned to real life and community experiences. We feel that this approach coupled with increased community experiences will assist parents in working with various agencies for the purposes of post-secondary and transition planning for their son/daughter upon graduation.

In the Career Center, students perform activities comparable to those one may perform in the community, i.e., sorting and delivering mail, hospitality, graphics arts, food service, and maintenance. Students are also very involved in honing their skills within the Paramus Campus as they perform various clerical/delivery tasks between buildings. Our students participate in the New Jersey State wide testing process. Student progress is reported in November during Parent-Teacher Conferences, at the student's Annual Review, and also in progress reports in January, March, and June.
