We train staff to support children and adolescents with disabilities or challenging behaviors in day camps, after school programs, park and recreation and other out of school programs so they can enjoy the benefits of recreation in their community. Between 18% to 20% of the general population is living with a disability. Are you leaving some kids out because of lack of staff training?
ASSESSMENTS AND INCLUSION SUPPORT PLANS
Do you have a child that needs additional support in your program due to a disability or behavior challenge? We can schedule a Leisure Interest and Functional Ability Assessment with the child and the parent, develop an Inclusion Support Plan with support strategies, and train your staff to implement to plan ensuring success for the child into your program.
Children are naturally inquisitive and, will want to explore. Sometime we mistake curiosity as misbehavior and miss an opportunity to share a magical moment with a child because we see the behavior as something other than what it is. All behavior is communication. Learn what your children are saying and how to create cooperative kids!
Using interventions such as sensory stimulation, social skills training, communication skills, motor skills development, expressive therapy, drumming, and play skills, recreation therapy focus on the whole child, addressing the social/emotional, physical, expressive, and cognitive needs of the individual.
