Handwriting & Yoga Summer Camps June 2016

Our Handwriting and Yoga Camps are ideal for kids between the ages of 5-10 who need improvement in writing legibility, are having issues with letter reversals and need to work on developing cursive skills. We will be using the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum which was developed by occupational therapists. To lay the foundation for good handwriting, each day we will incorporate sensory motor activities that work on the proprioceptive, vestibular, tactile and visual systems as well as activities to improve fine motor and visual motor skills. The daily yoga practice will help your child to improve body awareness, attention, self-regulatory abilities and learn relaxation techniques (important for reducing stress and anxiety). Your child will get the most benefit if they sign up for at least 2 weeks. Camps will be led by occupational therapist Yulene Broussard and yoga instructor Annette Raj, and facilitated by volunteers. Each camp is limited to 6-8 kids.
