Handwriting (WIN®) & Sensory Social Skills ~ WIN Write Incredibly Now Program ®

Camp Description

This camp utilizes sensory perceptual motor skills to enhance handwriting abilities, social skills, and related academic and cognitive performances. We incorporate pediatric yoga (self-regulation), music therapy (listening skills, organization, memory, etc.) ART with a trained artist ( composition, following directions, task initiation, processing, etc.) and Occupational Therapy for sensory perceptual integration. We use OT, Music Therapy, ART Therapy and a pediatric YOGA instructor.

Our social skills approach is NOT so much a “how to make friends “ class as it is a how to self regulate and be friends with yourself—taking criticisms learning from mistakes being unafraid to make choices AND personal space and learning from and with peers.

Your child will be exposed to techniques for learning how to:
• Transition from one task to another
• Tolerate more than one sensory stimuli
• Motor plan
• Organize self
• Divide tasks into “doable” parts
• Prioritize
• Decrease frustration in challenging situations
• Tolerate unfamiliar situations
• Co-operate with peers in task demand situations
• Increase endurance
• Increase problem solving abilities~~~~The group is highly staffed so that children get a lot of attention and at the same time are monitored to be independent with GOOD choices.

Full Day option is available through PACE Academy.

Ms. Susan has been a tremendous help to our 7 year daughter with dyspraxia. She previously went to a local occupational therapy center weekly for 4 years, but we never saw the progress that she has made since seeing Ms. Susan since this summer (individually and at her camp). She takes the time to really analyze her needs. She spends extra time with her, involves her parent in each session, sends her home with homework to practice, and even provides feedback and guidance for her IEP. She is a true gem and we were lucky to have found her.

Thank you so much for what you do for my daughter! She is doing better in school. She is not missing as many assignments. The number has shrunk to maybe 1 - 2 assignments a week. It used to be every assignment. I believe she is going to have a great 8th grade year because of your help with giving her great occupational therapy.
