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
• 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.
