Services for Preschool Age
Sensory-based fun! Our parent participation play class engages all
the senses through experience in play activities with purposeful
toys. Movement, vision, memory, music, and listening skills are
all part of a complete experience, which helps develop neural
pathways. Parents learn the best ways to play with their child
according to current brain research and how this play contributes
to life-long success in learning. Join us for a class that can
change the way your child learns.
School year: Thursdays 9:30 - 10:30 a.m.
Summer: Fridays 9-10 a.m.
Play-based fine motor readiness camp which emphasizes grasp development, eye-hand
coordination, scissor skills, left/right discrimination, stroke development, and developmental
fine motor readiness skills. Prepare your child for success in writing before they are required
to hold a pencil! Includes parent mini-lessons on things you can do at home.
Movement and music are essential for developing pathways in the brain that encourage learning.
Research shows that there are common threads in higher order thinking and musical experience,
and that movement is the gateway to all learning. This class further develops learning abilities
and perceptual skills for all children through specially designed music and movement activities
that are fun and engaging. When movement tasks and rhythm become automatic, children have
the freedom of handling more than one task at a time, making learning and the rate of processing
easier and faster.
Prepare your child for the demands of writing through this fun and engaging class. Utilizing fun,
"hands-on" techniques developed by a leading occupational therapist, this class is designed to
develop good writing habits and enhance fine motor skills. Children learn to write the alphabet
from A-Z using "block" or "snail tails" printing. Using a combination of the "First Strokes"
curriculum, multi-sensory techniques, Brain-Gym, and rhythm and timing exercises, children will
learn to write within the handwriting lines, with size and form consistency, proper sequencing,
and no reversals. This class includes mini-lessons for parents on things that you can do at home
to reinforce the good habits. This is writing as you have never seen it before and it works!

The Listening Program (TLP) is a Music-Based Auditory Stimulation method that enables
individuals with a broad range of abilities to achieve even more. Enhancing auditory perception
through TLP can lead to improvement in many areas: attention and concentration, listening,
speech and language, memory, communication, social skills, reading, sensory integration,
self-regulation, physical balance and coordination, and vocal performance / musical ability.

The Interactive Metronome (IM) is a brain-based training program that directly improves the
processing abilities affecting attention, motor planning, and sequencing. Clinical research
and IM case studies demonstrate that when a child has gains in motor planning, rhythmicity,
timing and sequencing, it leads to gains in attention and concentration, language processing,
behavior, fine/gross motor skills, balance and gait, strength and endurance, and coordination.
IM is used to enhance musical abilities, athletics, academics, and physical rehabilitation.
