COMING SOON! AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

We offer a two hour program for special needs individuals between the ages of 4 and 14. The program will offer opportunities to engage in developmentally appropriate arts and crafts, games and recreational activities in a closely monitored environment. Arts and crafts will give participants a chance to express creativity, boost their self esteem and develop fine motor and visual skills. Board games will provide participants opportunities to improve comprehension, social skills and fine motor control while interacting with others. Recreational activities will provide time for individuals to build gross motor skills by enhancing their strength, coordination, flexibility and balance in the gym.

The first hour will concentrate on arts and crafts and/or games in the classroom, where we will concentrate on social and communication skills. These activities will be selected to build on the skills the students need to develop. The social interactions will overtime provide opportunities for individuals to develop friendships. The second hour will be held in the gymnastics area, where we will focus on flexibility training, conditioning, tumbling, trampoline and pit work to increase gross motor skills, promote body awareness and positive self concepts. We require that personal care workers accompany participants to offer extra support services as needed.
