The Children's Program is designed for students ages 5 to 13. Students are taught skills needed to obtain optimal academic success and keep pace with their classmates in school. Students learn daily living skills, assistive technology, orientation & mobility, and social skills to help them succeed in life, foster independence and decision making.
School Year Program:
This program supplements the skills the students are learning in school through exciting educational experiences. A parent/guardian for each child is required to attend with their child for their own separate program. We instruct the parent/guardian on the same skills the children are learning so they may reinforce skills and independence at home. The program meets one Saturday of each month from 9:30am-2:00pm.
During the summer, the students are able to participate in a two-week day camp. Camp Discover is an engaging program of fun-filled learning. The students participate in cooking classes, art projects to develop tactile and cognitive learning, and self-advocacy and personal development lessons. The students also take community integration field trips and have fun guest speakers.
