Fall Fine Motor Camp 2017

A four week fun and interactive camp for children in Kindergarten and grades 1 - 3 who find printing or other fine motor activities challenging. The camp will be run by experienced pediatric occupational therapists. A multi-sensory approach will be used along with co-operative games and crafts to practice the skills needed for hand functioning. This camp is designed for children who may be experiencing mild to moderate delays in fine motor development or who would benefit from extra practice. The camp places an emphasis on grasp development, formation of lower case letters, legible printing, copying shapes and letters, using school tools (pencils, scissors, glue), in hand manipulation skills, eye hand coordination and strength. This includes a summary report identifying individual children's strengths, areas of need, and suggestions for further skill development will be provided. This camp will use a multi-sensory approach combining fine and gross motor movement to enhance learning. Parents are encouraged to attend the first of the four sessions in order to help their child feel more at ease in the group and to learn how to support their child with printing practice at home. Time: Printing Basics: 10:00 am - 11:15 am weekly (Saturdays: Oct 14, 21, 28 and Nov 4, 2017) Cost: $250.00 Where: Highlands Community Centre: 6112 - 113 Avenue Edmonton, AB Contact: Rebecca Cormier at 780.965.4310 or email growingchanges@gmail.com to register.
