Classes offered for children 5-12 years of age
Social Skills Challenge (ages 9-12) – Speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists will guide the children as they practice communicating with peers. The specific areas addressed will vary according to the needs of the children in each class and may include initiating and participating in conversation, maintaining appropriate eye contact, asking and responding to questions, and turn-taking. Children will practice social skills while participating in a variety of activities including role playing, outdoor games, board games, crafts, and conversation.
Multi-sensory academic enrichment (ages 5-8) – This class was created for children who are not quite ready for a traditional classroom learning experience, but who can participate in small-group academic and social activities. The ratio of adults to children is low, with a maximum of 8 kids and 3 adults. The class is led by a speech-language pathologist and an occupational therapist. Activities will target academic skills such as pre-reading, early math, basic concepts & vocabulary, and letter and number formation. Children will also have opportunities to grow in social development and practice emotional and sensory regulation. The therapists will use a multi-sensory approach to accommodate the array of learning styles.
