SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM
A program targeting many school readiness skills!
The program is set up and run replicating a school classroom environment.
Children follow typical classroom routines such as lining up, putting away their belongings
and sitting with a group on the mat.
Visual schedules are used to aid transitions between activities.
Brain gym is used each day of the program. This provides specific activities to facilitate
brain function for physical skills required for activities such as reading, writing & spelling.
Social thinking strategies are incorporated into the day via stories, songs and posters.
Children receive support from the Occupational Therapist to support their fine motor
skills, correct pencil grip, pre-writing skills, letter formation and cutting skills.
Pre-Literacy skills are developed daily by the Speech Pathologist.
Gross motor skill activities are incorporated to assist in coordination, balance and strength
(all required for effective fine motor skill use).
Children learn behaviours such as transitioning, following instructions, and completing tasks independently, sharing resources and problem solving in a supported environment.
Bookings and payment in advance required as spaces are limited.
