We love summer programs!
Summer Programs are a *fantastic* way to cement some of the knowledge and skills that your child is working on in a small and supervised setting that will guarantee a positive experience. Summer groups allow us to see your child in a different setting (ie with other kids), and often that generates a clearer picture for us of what your child needs and how we can help your family. Your child gets to have a bit more fun in therapy, and you get to save a bit of money! It’s a win-win-win situation.
We have a number of summer program ideas! For some of these groups, we have identified dates/times and the therapist who will be running it. For others, we are waiting to see who is interested, and what weeks might work for them. So please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name down for more updates on any of these groups. thanks!
Typing Boost Program!
All ages and stages
$65/hour “OT group treatment”
This group runs once a week (usually every Wednesday) all summer for 1 hour in the early evening. An exact time will be found that works among the interested families. Children can miss any 2 weeks of the 8 summer weeks (billed for 6 weeks). Typing instruction is individualized to your child’s level, but the group just makes it more fun! Mastery of touch typing requires ongoing practice, even if your kid has done a program but could benefit from a refresher, this could work for you. Touch typing ability is an incredible gift you can provide for your child’s future!
Week/time to be arranged, 1 hr/day
We were inspired to start this group based on the number of girls we are seeing that are struggling with similar friend issues and their sense of self. This is a chance for girls to realize they are not alone! Everyday will include sensory time and an activity that teaches about and leads discussion into a friendship skill or common issue. We will follow this with an empowerment (self-esteem building) activity for the girls. Parents might find they connect too, using the ‘waiting room effect’ during this group. We will pull together a week and time of day based on interested girls’ availabilities.
9:30 – 11:30 am Aug 29 – Sept 2
Join a very small group to work on back-to-school skills with Monica Grenzer! One individual goal (parent suggested) can be incorporated for each child for this therapy intensive. The morning will include group instruction, individualized printing work, snack, outside recess skills, as well as lots of sensory fun! Depending on volunteers, the ratio in this group is often 1:1. Take advantage of this opportunity to develop school strategies as suggested by this very experienced school care therapist.
