Recreational Focused Classes

Children need to be able to move their bodies, and stretch their muscles, after long periods of schooling and learning. At KOL, our weekend recreational classes focus on getting our children up and moving while practicing some body coordination through balance, stopping and going, and gross motor activities. These classes promote physical wellness, as well as social well-being and how to be a team player with your peers! Recreational classes are important for our children simply because they allow them to be themselves in an environment that is built for them to thrive.

Socialization Focused Groups

Socialization is an important aspect of child development due to the language skills it builds, the coping skills it can reinforce, and the relationships it can build with others. At KOL, these classes recognize the benefits of socialization and focus on helping children communicating their needs, both verbally and non-verbally. Our teachers use fun activities, such as creative art directives, to teach children how to share with others, comment on the things they may like about other’s work, and express their own feelings to the best of their abilities. These classes focus on role modeling, positive reinforcement, prompting through verbal cues, and practicing self-advocacy!

Art therapy is the therapeutic use of art making as a form of expression which can open doors to communication. Many individuals with autism think visually “in pictures”.
