February 12th, 2014:
Are you homeschooling your child who has disabilities or special needs?
Are you interested in a low-key, fun playgroup where your child can socialize, explore sensory gym equipment, and participate in semi-structured activities like arts-and-crafts?
Do you want to meet new friends who understand the challenges and joys of homeschooling children with disabilities/special needs?
“Extreme Homeschoolers!” may be just what you’re looking for. On Fridays, we’re opening two groups for homeschooled children with disabilities/special needs and their caregivers this Spring semester. Gather at Extreme Kids & Crew’s CAP House sensory playspace, enjoy playtime and socialization in an open, friendly environment, and participate in activities tailored toward the needs and interests of the children in the group. This program is free of charge.
This program will be facilitated by Emily Brooks, Program Coordinator, CAP House, Extreme Kids & Crew. Emily Brooks is a disability services professional who works with children and teenagers, and their teachers, parents and caregivers. She has three years experience assisting in a high school special education classroom and one-and-a-half years assistant teaching preschool and elementary school students with a variety of special needs, in special education and integrated preschool settings in the US and in a special education elementary school in Guatemala. Additionally, she has planned and facilitated arts and craft workshops, both one-on-one and for small groups. Homeschooled for eight years of her education, Emily is comfortable and familiar with the homeschooling community.
