We are now enrolling students ages 6-11 for our Fall session of Self-Regulation Groups in East Sacramento. Children will work together to learn self-regulation skills through a fun and challenging, game based curriculum. Children will learn to understand their own unique sensory systems and match their arousal levels to a particular activity. They will learn about tools and strategies to assist with self-regulation in a classroom, tools to assist with emotional self-regulation when interacting with others and independence in identifying their individualized sensory needs. The course is designed by an occupational therapist and utilizes the Zones of Regulation curriculum. The next session will begin Sept. 6th, 2017.  The cost of this 6-week course is $360.

We are now enrolling students in pre-kindergarten through 3rd grade for a play-based handwriting skills group. The goal of this group is to write our letters in a developmentally correct way which will lead to better precision and legibility. This particular group is designed for who are already writing at least most of their letters but need help with legibility due to poor finger strength, difficulties with reversals, poor use of the lines of the paper, or poor visual motor control. Contact us for more information. This play-based class incorporates gross motor obstacle courses for core and finger strengthening and multi-sensory mazes to prepare for the handwriting lesson which is always disguised as fun! The cost of this 5-week course is $300. 

Lego Robotics

Winter, 2017

Contact us to be added to our interest list: Lego Robotics for Neuro-Diverse Populations. This 5-week program will bring the opportunity for kids to begin building and programming robots using lego technic Mindstorms elements. The roboticprogramming curriculum will teach kids pathways to solve small problems such as having the robot moving to a different place, perform a task (pick up objects) and understand relationships between building and programming for a purpose. The Mindstorms robot tasks will range from easy to medium difficulty providing kids with opportunities to accomplish and to challenge them. They will work in pairs providing the opportunity to develop social skills such as taking turns, engaging their partner and working together to solve challenges using the building and programming skills learned. This class was specifically designed for children who have an interest in Robotics and require social skills support. We will be selecting appropriate groups for child success.
