Special Parents of Teaneck (SPOT) Sponsors Art Show to Highlight Students in Teaneck Who Receive Occupational Therapy

Artwork from Special Needs Children Showcased.

Teaneck, NJ, May 06, 2010 --(PR.com)-- On May 10, 2010, some of the children who receive occupational therapy services in the Teaneck public schools will be exhibiting art work produced over the past school year during their Occupational Therapy (OT) sessions. The exhibit, entitled “Celebrate The World Through My Eyes,” will be held in the Teaneck Schools’ Central Office at 1 Merrison Street in Teaneck. The reception for the event will take place from 6-8 p.m. in the Staff Development Room and will be open to all. The young artists used a variety of materials to create unique designs, collages, and mosaics for the show. Photography will also be exhibited.

The show is sponsored by SPOT, Special Parents of Teaneck, an organization of parents of children who receive special services in town. SPOT awarded a grant to an occupational therapist, Linda Buckbinder, to develop the project. “The idea was for these children to participate in producing their own art show, invite their parents and their teachers, and share their pride in their work with families and community,” said Buckbinder.
