MONTVILLE, NJ (December 20, 2015) – On Saturday, December 19, 2015, at 10 am, New York Jets superstar alumni Wesley Walker, Fred Baxter, and Glenn Foley, Montville Mayor Scott Gallopo, Montville Committeeman-Elect Frank Cooney, and Montville Chamber of Commerce President Kenneth Young, will join the non-profit organization D.A.D., to help launch a new initiative that provides free outreach services for special needs families throughout Morris County. The event will take place at the new D.A.D. offices, 144 Main Road, Montville, NJ, 07045.

D.A.D.’s free outreach services include IEP formation assistance, Medicaid and New Jersey Department of Human Resources registration assistance, and special needs therapeutic referrals. These services are in addition to D.A.D.’s celebrated, pioneering “Healing Art of Drum Therapy,” program.

“The special needs population is an important part of Montville,” says Montville Mayor Scott Gallopo. “We are happy that the D.A.D. Program is in town to offer their free outreach programs.”

“Our Montville location enables us to help even more special needs children and their families throughout Morris County,” says D.A.D. President/CEO Pat Gesualdo. “Our award winning, pioneering Drum Therapy program helps children with Autism, ADHD, and other disabilities, to develop physical and cognitive functioning. Our free outreach services will also help these children and their families to live happier, healthier lives.”



D.A.D. (Drums and Disabilities) is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization. Psychologists, neuroscientists, health facilities, school systems, and special needs therapists in over 14 countries use D.A.D.’s “Healing Art of Drum Therapy” program, to help special needs children develop physical and cognitive functioning.

Numerous celebrities, sports stars, law enforcement agencies, major corporations, and child protective service agencies have joined with D.A.D. to help children fight disabilities on a Global basis.
