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. This program provides a strong foundation in language, literacy, science and mathematics via a multi-sensory approach. It is our goal to help our students reach their greatest potential in their communities. To reach that goal, we work collaboratively with the students' team. Team members include, but are not limited to, the teacher, parent, school case manager, nurse, speech therapist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, behaviorist, nurse, local district case manager, individual nurse or assistant and principal.

We also utilize specialists in the areas of augmentative communication, assistive technology and adaptive equipment in order to meet the unique learning needs of our students. Functional academic instruction is aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy are provided as prescribed by each students' Individual Education Plan (IEP). The in-house Career Awareness Center focuses on an "experiential" model which is closely aligned to real life community experiences. We feel that this approach, coupled with increased community interactions and experiences, will assist parents in working with various agencies for the purposes of post-secondary and transition planning for their son/daughter upon graduation. The Child Study Team at Bleshman Regional Day School works closely with the families in navigating the processes involved in planning for the transition from the education setting to adult life.

One of the latest initiatives at Bleshman Regional Day School is the expansion of our in-house technology which includes robotics! This has been a wonderful addition to our programming in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Technology is a useful tool to support as well as promote student engagement with activities and lessons. School based activities are designed to promote natural learning opportunities and social skills within the classroom, the school apartment, school store, school library, on the fully accessible playground in the spacious backyard, and during the many school wide events held with members of the local community. Students also attend adaptive physical education class, music class, and art class on a weekly basis.
