Communication works for those who work at it!

Does your child struggle to communicate in the classroom or navigate social situations? Is it a challenge for them to understand social nuances? If so, ACTG’s Sociable Motor Works summer camp may be able to help. This six-week camp supports families and caregivers of someone experiencing difficulties across a variety of environments (school, athletics, structured and unstructured activities) and addresses concerns related to:

 

·      Social Skills

·      Problem Solving

·      Time Management

·      Reading Nonverbal and Environmental Cues

·      Task Initiation

·      Using Narratives


Sociable Motor Works focuses on providing studeents with tools to use in a variety of social situations as well as ways to support managing one's resources to achieve a goal. Students will work in small groups (3-5 per session) led by a Speech-Language Pathologist and a Developmental Adaptive Physical Education Teacher. This collaboration will connect movement and social skills, and model familiar versus unanticipated behaviors.

 

The program also introduces a motor component to help a child’s brain prepare to learn while introducing and utilizing functional social-vocabulary concepts that help a student generalize skills in a community setting. Additionally, parents and caregivers will be given tips and resources to practice these new skills at home with their child.

 

Each 90-minute session will include social skills work, executive function development, motor and reflex activity, and a parent/caregiver meeting.

 

The camp will be held twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from June 10 through July 28, with the week of the 4th of July off. The cost of the program is $750 per person.  

 

Schedule:

·      Ages 6 - 8: 9:00 am – 10:30 am

·      Ages 9 – 11: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

·      Ages 12 – 14: 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

 

In an effort to make sure this program is appropriate for your child, your child needs to be able to attend to safety instructions, participate in small groups, accept adult direction, and possess receptive and expressive language within a year of chronological age.
