Newmark Education Philanthropy
On September 13th, we attended the reception for the grand opening of Newmark Education’s new school facilities in Scotch Plains. Having previously held an auction in their benefit, it was a pleasure to see first-hand the realization of their efforts as well as the results from contributions by business owners like ourselves and members of our community.
Newmark Education’s state-approved school system provides private education from kindergarten through high school for children living with autism spectrum, mood, and anxiety disorders, as well as children with attention and other developmental disabilities. Newmark’s individually-tailored academic plans and deep understanding of the specific needs of their students promote independent thinking and decision making, and in the process develop the skills necessary to live fully, confidently, and successfully.
We are pleased to say that Newmark shares the benefits of their experience and success by training other professionals through a Teacher Training Institute. This comes in response to an overwhelming demand for trained professionals within traditional school settings to accommodate similar behaviorally challenged students.
New Jersey maintains one of the highest autism rates nationwide. However, this statistic comes with a silver lining. It is through a state-wide abundance of resources and services directed towards autism – institutions like Newmark – that have resulted in higher autism awareness and more accurate diagnoses. We wish to extend our thanks to Newmark and their vision, as well as our gratitude to our customers who helped make our donation possible.
