Lincoln Park is a partner of the North Jersey Health Collaborative, a group of more than 150 organizations working together to create healthy communities and healthy people. Every three years, we try to figure out what topics we should focus on to improve health in northern New Jersey.
To make sure we choose the things that really matter, we need to hear from people who live and work in our communities. This is your chance to tell us what you think we should focus on. This should take about 12 minutes and you can skip any questions you do not want to answer. Your answers are completely confidential (they won't be shared with your name) and whether or not you want to share your voice is up to you. If you would like to get a copy of the results, be involved in future conversations, or enter for a chance to win $100, you can add your contact information at the end.

Lincoln Park Exceptional Children - LPEC

Who are “Exceptional Children”? 
Exceptional children are not only those with special needs, but those that may face challenges in thinking, communication, movement, getting along with others, and taking care of one’s self.  Exceptional children may also have challenges with speech impediments, shyness and/or gross or fine motor skill challenges.  Exceptional children may have ADHD or they may be a “gifted child” that faces challenges from their academic abilities.  When we become educated on the exceptional child , we can  help lead the child toward being included with, not excluded from, regular activities.
