S.M.A.R.T. Boost-Up Plus

Movement Influences Learning!

S.M.A.R.T. Boost Up Plus is a multi-sensory approach that gives children the readiness skills they need to reach their full potential. We believe physical movement directly influences one's ability to learn, think and remember. The program incorporates developmentally-appropriate gross motor work through a fun and challenging obstacle course and other physical activities designed for healthy brain development, including reflex-pattern integration, yoga, mindfulness, and vision and auditory integration activities.

Our classes range in ages from 5 to 15-years-old. Class sizes are limited to nine participants. The class is led by an experienced S.M.A.R.T. trained educator, Patrick Dreher, MS, special ed. and adapted physical education teacher. He has been part of the S.M.A.R.T. summer programs since 2015.

Boost-Up Plus runs Monday - Friday from July 29 - August 16, 2019

We will also be holding a parent training instructional on Wednesdays during the first hour of your child’s program time. While this is not a requirement, it is part of your fee and will be helpful to understand the benefits of S.M.A.R.T. as well as how to easily implement S.M.A.R.T. activities in your everyday home setting. You will learn a bit of theory and a lot of activities!
