Jane began her career in her hometown of Nottingham in the United Kingdom, where she successfully managed a health and social care team that aimed at helping people within the local community. She is experienced in working with families whose children may suffer from ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, as well as behavioral and social difficulties. Her extensive studies and experience will be a great asset to the center. Upon leaving school Jane studied business and then later psychology, and was an accredited adult education teacher in the UK before moving to the United States.
With Jane’s help we will continue with our mission to provide high quality services. Many children continue to benefit from our social-skills group which meets at the center once a week, focusing on managing anxiety, building friendships, reading social cues, gaining independence, and sharing with others. Jane will assist Rebecca Yun-Lee, PhD in supporting the children and facilitating group activities.
Our trained therapists are active in both Bergen and Passaic County – in school, at home, and at the center. Jane will provide additional support to this dedicated, multidisciplinary team in 2016!
The Children’s Focus Therapy Center already serves as home for both the children we care for and their parents. Jane will complement our friendly, family orientated environment by implementing a new parent/carer support group. This group will consist of monthly meetings run by our trained specialists to provide support, education, and advice for struggling families.
Summer is around the corner and so it Camp FOCUS! This unique camp is designed and facilitated by our licensed Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists, and Psychotherapists. Campers in recent years have benefit from their experience in a number of areas, improving on fine motor skills, physical abilities, and social skills while making friends and having fun in a safe environment. Jane will assist the therapists with the advertising and recruitment, as well as the planning and scheduling of camp activities.
