Music & Movement
Music is a powerful motivator! This spring springbreak we are planning on offering a weeklong camp 9-12 daily to promote successful play skills in a group setting. We hope to energize and excite the kids, but also allow them to become more confident in areas they might avoid in a large group setting.
This spring group camp for children ages 4-5 is geared toward helping kids with:
- small group play
- cooperative activities
- more structured games and activities
- skills like taking turns and sharing
- maintaining personal space while moving within a group environment (and all through fun activities and games!).
We will utilize a comprehensive approach to facilitating sensory integration and motor control, which drives learning, and therefore the performance of our children. The camp is geared towards children who are ready to experience fun activities with their peers but might still be challenged in traditional camp programs.
The group is run by a occupational, physical, and certified music therapist who team together to help the children have an opportunity to explore a variety of sensory experiences as they engage in physical and fine motor activities in a group setting with the powerful motivator of music! Using therapeutic activities, gross motor games, yoga based exercises, and music, we will have fun while addressing:
- Age appropriate gross and fine motor development
- Self-regulation and sensory processing abilities
- Hand skills, including strength and dexterity
- Postural control, core-muscle strengthening, balance and coordination, body and space awareness and motor planning
Our goal is for each child to have a mind and body ready for interactive play with their peers in a fun setting!

Handwriting without Tears
Handwriting can be fun! Using a variety of sensory approaches and fun developmentally appropriate activities, groups are organized to help children feel confident as they improve their written communication. Handwriting groups offered at the clinic utilize the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum developed by Jan Olsen and are led by an Occupational Therapist.
The session’s emphasize:
- multi-sensory activities
- hand strength & pencil grip
- letter formation
- appropriate sizing/spacing/line orientation
- writing speed
These small groups are run by an occupational therapist to address fine motor, play skills, social development and sensory processing. Preschool children in this group are 3-5 years old with goals established to promote each child’s potential to succeed in play with their peers. Groups are limited to 5 children. Please contact us for a detailed flyer about this group.
