Let’s Make Eating Simple

“Go Further with Food” is the theme for 2018, and its importance is timely for many reasons. Whether it’s starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a difference. Preparing foods to go further at home and within the community can have a positive impact, as well. As nutrition experts, Academy members can help people adopt healthier eating styles, while reducing food loss and waste.

TRINITAS CHILDREN’S THERAPY SERVICES

(973) 218-6394

 

Spring Programs: February 5 – May 18

All programs are offered one time per week, for 45 minutes at Trinitas Children’s Therapy Services. Our programs and group sessions are a great alternative to direct therapy services. They give children the opportunity to address key developmental areas in structured but busier environments that are more reflective of typical real-life situations.

 

Scribbles to Script

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

 

Sports 1 Step at a Time

Children between the ages of 4 and 12 have the opportunity to receive an introduction into several fall/winter sports, including soccer, basketball, football, bowling, and kickball, in a non-competitive group setting. Overseen by a PT.

 

Social Butterflies

Children between the ages of 4 and 12 have the opportunity to become social butterflies by engaging in fun nonchallenging tabletop and movement-based activities. The highly therapeutic classes will be overseen by a speech and language pathologist and/or an OT. Skills taught include turn-taking, topic maintenance, appropriate question asking, following non-verbal cues, and using manners. 

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. Overseen by an OT. 􀀀

 

Summer Programs

We are now accepting registrations for summer 2018.

Early Bird Special: The first 10 Camp Registrants receive a 10% discount.

Whole Camp Special: Sign up for all 7 weeks and 28 days and receive an additional 10% discount.

 

Camp Trinitas

This program is the perfect opportunity to have children gain new skills or maintain recently-learned motor and academic skills without a full day or even a full week commitment. Sign up for as many days/weeks as you would like. Sign up for a half or full-day. Allow your child to participate in a camp directly organized and supervised by skilled OT’s, PT’s, speech therapists, and ABA clinicians, to address each child’s specific needs. 

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.
