For children who struggle with managing their emotions or making social connections, consider LD Edmonton’s Beyond Words Social Skills Day Camp. Children with learning disabilities and ADHD are welcome.
Participants learn social skills in a safe setting in the morning and then practice what they have learned out in the community in the afternoon. Outings can include: riding Edmonton Transit, swimming, bowling, golfing, and other activities chosen by the group.
The day camp runs from July 21 to 25, 2014, and is for kids ages 8-13 who are struggling to keep friends and interact with their peers.
The camp teaches confidence in:
- Phone skills;
- How to read nonverbal cues.
Cost: $350 for members/$400 for non-members.* Programming runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm daily.
Please contact the LD Edmonton office for more information or to register.
