Winter/Spring Programs:

All programs are offered one time per week, for 45 minutes at Trinitas Children’s Therapy Services,

899 Mountain Avenue, Suite 1A, Springfield, NJ 07081

These programs and/or group therapy sessions are a great alternative to individual therapy. They give children the opportunity to address key developmental areas in structured but busier environments that are more reflective of typical real-life home and school situations.  Classes are grouped by skill and age level.

 

Scribbles to Script

Children from preschool (prewriting) through elementary school (cursive) have the opportunity to use the Handwriting Without Tears program to learn pre-writing skills, proper letter formation, and writing within the given lines.  Multi-sensory fine motor, visual-motor, and visual-perceptual activities help to reinforce learning and make writing fun! 45-minute classes held once weekly.

 

Sports 1 Step at a Time

Children between the ages of 4 & 12 will have the

opportunity to work with a PT to refine their skill set for several sports, including soccer, basketball, and kickball, in a non-competitive group setting. 45-minute sessions held once weekly.

 

Social Butterflies

Children between the ages of 4 & 12 have the opportunity to

become social butterflies by engaging in fun non-challenging therapeutic activities overseen by a speech & language pathologist. Skills taught include turn taking, topic maintenance, appropriate question asking, following non-verbal cues, and using manners. 45-minute sessions held once weekly.

 

Typing Whizkids

Children from 1st grade through middle school will participate in functional tasks that will allow them to learn efficient keyboarding/typing skills. From key location and finger placement, to speed and accuracy children will learn this valuable skill the correct way while working with an OT. 45-minute sessions held once weekly.

To register for any programs or for more information, please contact Kevin Nelson at knelson@trinitas.org,

(973) 218-6394, ext. 1300, or fax (973) 218-6351.
