After School Enrichment
Our After School program is open to youths 3-20 years of age. We facilitate learning through structured hands-on 30-45 minutes sessions (specials), homework help and independent or group activities (games, crafts, sensory play, and STEAM projects, meal preparation, and functional skills training). Learners participate in weekly activities planned and implemented utilizing science-based practices such as task analysis, natural environment teaching, modeling, prompting, and visual supports. The program also introduces music and yoga in order to give youths an opportunity to partake in musical expression and fitness.
Our programs aim to increase social skills, fine motor skills, expressive and receptive language and are carefully designed to be easily adaptable to varying abilities. This enables everyone to be successful which is important for building self-esteem.
