Attention parents: we're trying out a new program specially designed for children on the Spectrum (ASD or Asperger's). While we welcome all children to any of our programs, this program will have limited attendance to ensure a small group, and will be held in the Theater Room of the Mary Vinson Memorial. Parents must sign up interested children up ahead of time in the Children's Dept of the Mary Vinson Memorial Library. Please let us know if your family has any special accommodations or needs and we'll do our best to meet them! ...
As a local special educator, I am THRILLED to see this opportunity!! I will be sharing with my students families. We need more resources like this for our students!
Julie Scott Parmley do you know about this?
Suzanne Daly Falchook, I don't! But like Brit, I will share with our families as well. I'd like to find out more about this!
I'm interested and would like more information please
Hi Julie Scott Parmley Mindy Moore !
The Sensory Club is a brand new program that we're trying out at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library. We're doing a test run on August 23rd at 3:30pm in the Theater Room of the Children's Dept. We want to provide a program that has a smaller group number than our larger programs-- we're capping attendance at 6 children. We're asking parents to sign up ahead of time at the library--similar to how we handle the Just 4 Fun Club. Each month will offer a new sensory experience (water beads, musical instruments, play-doh, etc).
Also, if there are any things that we need to know about your child to ensure they have a more enjoyable experience, we'd love to know. The best way for us to serve you and your family is to get feedback from you about what works and what doesn't. Our hope is to offer this program once a month during the school year. If all goes well, we'd like to extend it to our summer programming schedule.
For our first program next week, we're going to play with magnet games! We have several fun sensory games and toys from a STEAM grant and we think any kid would enjoy playing with them! Ideally, the program will last about an hour, and parents can either be in the room with their child, or can browse books in the Children's Dept. while their kid plays/socializes.
We hope this provides you with a little more information! Please let us know if you have any more questions. 🙂
Thank you so much! Do you an have age range you are targeting?
There is still time to read and join us for the After Hours book club! We've had a great time this summer and are excited to extend the book club through the end of 2018! Just bring yourself and the book! ...
