HAPPy Saturdays focus on communication and social skills development, through movement, sport, and recreation. It is our kiddos' weekend after all, so while we implement and generalize skill sets they are working on during their school week, we kick it up a notch and energize our interactions to keep motivation and the fun factor high! Our activities change slightly from week to week, but include things such as: yoga, basketball, bowling, soccer, obstacle courses, exercise/workout regimens, parachute play, music and rhythm, exploring the senses and sensory integration. We also promote the brain-body connection through HANDLE and Brain Gym exercises. We promote a love of learning and self-confidence in a fun, lively atmosphere that supports every students' individual needs and challenges them to use their strengths and passions to have fun and foster friendships!
