Special Needs Martial Arts Program
Faustini’s Institute is now offering a martial arts program with highly specialized instruction for children with special needs.
The program is designed by Richard Faustini, director of the school. Mr. Faustini was a special ed. teacher with Bergen County Special Services for 10 years and was instrumental in putting their behavior management program into place. Mr. Faustini has also been teaching martial arts to children in the Bergen County area for 35 years.
The program is taught by Brianna Faustini and Lynn Brennan along with their staff. Brianna is NJ certified in Special Ed. and Lynn is NJ certified in Early Elementary Ed.
The goal of our program is to help your special needs
child reach their highest level of physical, mental, emotional
and social development. This will be achieved in a
fun, yet disciplined program which is always positive and nurturing.
The class will help your child improve their coordination,
physical fitness level, concentration, confidence,
self-esteem, self-discipline, motor development, balance,
agility, and a general positive attitude towards themselves.
The program will address the needs of children with Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism (with varying degrees of severity), Severe Attention Deficit Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, various learning disabilities, and objectionable behaviors.
In order to maximize your child’s success in our program, we offer an initial, private, complimentary session.
If your child cannot participate in a group setting, private lessons are also available.
