Jump Ahead Pediatrics is proud to offer occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, ABA therapy and other related services to both public, private, and charter schools throughout New Jersey. Founded over six years ago, Jump Ahead Pediatrics came to be after two therapy providers decided that students deserved better. Janki and Brittany were tired of seeing the same old practices implemented year after year with little attention paid to innovative solutions and out-of-the-box thinking. As a women-owned small business, Jump Ahead Pediatrics is absolutely committed to putting our school districts and their students first. We are currently providing exemplary service to numerous school districts through our expert evaluations, consultations, and individual treatments sessions. We are happy to connect you with school-specific references who can speak to our services and differentiating factors.
Our goal is to help children reach their full potential in school, at home, and in the community by using therapeutic approaches supported by research and experience. We collaborate with caregivers and teachers to develop individualized treatment plans with school-centered goals.
Our strategies incorporate the child’s school routine as well as the family's daily routine in order to provide the child with ample opportunity to expand their skills. Our therapists provide families and teachers with take-home strategies and treatment rationales so they can carry over practices after using them in the classroom.
At Jump Ahead Pediatrics, we believe that a successful administrative experience leads to better outcomes for our children. This is why our executive team is committed to following all of our staff’s cases regardless of volume, seniority or skill. This level of involvement from the top down ensures that we are able to quickly address issues before they arise, and can guarantee responses within 24 hours.
Every single one of our partner school districts is provided with a designated Jump Ahead Pediatrics team. This means that your specific needs are addressed by an educated party without needing to navigate the bureaucracy that is often present in some nationwide firms.
