New This Summer!
Sensory Arts Adventures at Rashkis Elementary
Saturday, July 15
Express yourself using all five senses! Artist, Laura Maruzzella, will lead the exploration, as your child with special needs touches, sees, hears, smells and (safely) tastes through art. After setting out on a story book adventure, kids will take turns painting with musical paint brushes, sculpting scented salt dough (colored with Koolaid!) and creating drum splatter paintings.
Wear clothes that can get messy.
Participants should be able to hold and manipulate basic art tools (paintbrushes, child-safe clay tools and pencils) with adaptions but without major assistance.

Social Skills Building for the Real World!
Rashkis Elementary School
Teens with social skills deficits will get to know each other while having fun, practicing ways to bring everyone into a conversation and keeping the interaction going. Your instructor for this highly structured interactive minicamp is Rhonda Maiani, who has been a Licensed/Certified Speech/Language Pathologist for nearly 30 years. Along with Rhonda, teens will tell funny, simple jokes, play a variety of interactive board games and role play simple real-life scenes. Participants will practice interactive social communications and learn about engaging others in conversation by finding out about their interests and taking on their perspectives. Games, music, crafts, and videos will help round out our summer social experience. We’ll meet five days a week in an air conditioned classroom. Sign up for multiple weeks, since we’ll concentrate on different skills each week.
If a participant exhibits behaviors which may affect ability to participate fully in the program, an accompanying caregiver would be required. Bring a snack & drink and a water bottle, each day.
