Dear Cypress Families:

  1. Reopening is unfortunately STILL undetermined. We are awaiting news from the State Governor and Superintendent. It’s frustrating that there’s no answer yet. 

 

  1. We have been reviewing safe re-entry plans for Extended School Year possibly 6/22 and/or Regular School Year 8/18 and discussing how to implement at Cypress. 

 

  1. Our ABA Summer Program June 8-19 will continue with Distance Learning for five hours per day 9-2pm. Becca (Rebecca) Wilson is the Director of that program. 

 

  1. Becca has four Coordinators and three Behavior Interns helping to organize the ABA summer daily groups and individual Zooms, videos, phone calls and delivered/mailed activity packets. She also has four Senior Leads that will be also running groups and doing individual supports. We also have approximately 40 regular Teacher Aides who will be assigned zooms, phone calls, drop offs and videos. We will be having popcorn/movies on Fridays and daily activities including PE, Yoga, virtual field trips, lunch games, music, drama and art/crafts. 

 

  1. Sarah Doherty, our Cypress Consulting Behaviorist (sdoherty@compassllc.org), Jeff Eaton our BCBA Behavior Intern, (jeaton@ucpnb.organd I will be available for behavior supports throughout!!!

 

  1. Most ABA Summer participants are fully funded through the Regional Center, Kaiser and Partnership Health. If you have sent in your application you should be getting a confirmation from Becca. Becca’s email is rwilson@ucpnb.org. We are currently sending 40 Behavior Reports in for our requirement for funding. We will contact you if there are any individual needs. 

Best wishes to all of our families and students! We miss you! 

Laura, Nate and Joe

Hi friends!
October 6th is World Cerebral Palsy day!
Today we come together (virtually) to celebrate, to build awareness of what CP is and to create change!

At BOOST we celebrate our students achievements! It is impressive how all of them have adapted to this new crazy schedule and continued to work towards their goals. We are so proud of you for doing all this with a smile on your face!

Did you know that there are 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy? It is the most common physical disability in childhood. It primarily affects movement, but people with CP may also have visual, learning, hearing, speech, epilepsy and intellectual impairments.

BOOST offers a classroom program that is structured specifically for children with Cerebral Palsy and other motor disabilities. Our students learn best in a movement based structure. Therefore we provide multiple opportunities where they can practice and learn to master their skills. We are proud to be an organization that is creating change and working hard so that our students can have a better life.

Let’s celebrate in person next year! 💚💚💚

Thank you to our UCPNB family for loving, caring and advocating for our students! Margaret Farman, Laura Briggin, Nate Yates, Jen Whalen, Steve Gatlin, Amanda Buhrer, Devin Cornish, Kiana Shibata, Sammie Wills, Nana Peña Caldera💚💚

World CP Day is an opportunity for the whole world to come together to recognize and celebrate the 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy.

On 6 October every year, individuals, families and organizations celebrate by sharing stories, hosting events, and wearing the color green.

Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood disability, yet around the globe, there’s a broad lack of knowledge of what it is and how it’s caused, even in the medical field.

Through World CP Day we can build awareness of what CP is, how it’s caused, and how early detection and intervention is the key to improving outcomes for people with CP.

As World CP Day continues to grow in popularity, we will continue to show the world all the incredible things that people with cerebral palsy achieve when barriers are removed.
