Therapy & Fun

Therapy & Fun is a seven week summer program set up similar to a day camp. Children ages 3-14 with a range of disabilities attend three days a week and participate in activities facilitated by our therapists (speech, occupational, and dance-movement) and peer-to-peer volunteers. Activities include games, crafts, music, and more. Over the summer, clients are able to build their speech, motor, and social skills so they can be prepared for the school year ahead.
