CPD Offers Social Skills Day Camps for Children
The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University will offer three day camps focused on social skills for children in grades 2-5. The camps will run from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday for four weeks in June and July at the CPD.
According to Jacqueline Guymon, a speech-language pathologist with the CPD’s Up to 3 early intervention program, the camps will help children who have social learning challenges to think about, and respond appropriately to, other people’s social cues. The camps will utilize the “Superflex” Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum.
The cost for each three-day camp will be $60 and will include a t-shirt, a Superflex movie made by the camper, a list of “Unthinkables©” and how to defeat them, prizes and snacks. There is a limit of 10 campers per session.
The June 11-13 session will focus on a character called Rock Brain©, who “makes people get stuck on their own ideas.”
The June 25-27 session will focus on Glassman©, who “wants people to shatter over small things.”
The July 9-11 session will focus on Brain Eater©, who “distracts people.”
The July 16-18 session will focus on One-Sided Sid©, who “gets people to only talk about themselves.”
To reserve a spot in any session, contact Guymon at 797-9470.
