Classes focus on achieving developmental milestones, interacting socially with peers, and acquiring new skills related to leisure and sport while having fun in a positive environment.

Each child participates in a standardized assessment--the Comprehensive Evaluation in Recreation Therapy--during the first class. From this assessment, four individualized goals and a treatment plan is developed.

Children follow a schedule of activities intertwining their individual therapeutic goals with gross motor activities, socialization, games, and a variety of strategically adapted sports activities.
