Sensory Play with Food (age 3 1/2 – 5 years)

Let’s get messy! Occupational therapists use a fun, sensory-based approach to expose children to foods during play without the pressure/expectation to consume it. A variety of foods are introduced to explore the different properties of foods, including how they look, smell, feel (and maybe even taste!). Led by an Occupational Therapist. Hours: 10 a.m. – noon

Handwriting HelpersĀ (age 5 1/2 – 7 years)

Based on the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, children refine handwriting skills to address letter formation, sizing, spacing and fine adherence, while strengthening working memory, perceptual skills, and fine motor coordination. Led by an Occupational Therapist. Hours: 1:30-3:30 p.m.

ABA Social Skills Camps (age 4 – 8 years)
