BURLINGTON, Ontario, Feb. 6, 2015 /CNW/ -- Over the upcoming March break, Canoe Therapy is offering two children's therapy groups, Monster Munchers and Camp Canoe. Monster Munchers, which promotes stronger feeding skills, is open to children between ages 5 and 8 who have trouble eating a full range of foods or handling unusual food textures. Camp Canoe, which is designed for children between ages 3 and 9, encourages children to build social skills with games and other activities that are suitable for children with various conditions, including autism.
Both therapy groups use a variety of approaches to help children develop the targeted skills. Monster Munchers, which is designed for both parents and children, uses structured meals and sensory exercises to encourage children to eat a wider variety of foods. During classes, parents also learn about techniques for helping their children overcome picky eating habits at home. Camp Canoe features various games, including board games, group games, and gym games, as well as crafts and cooperative activities. This camp is designed to give children with various diagnoses, including autism, a chance to practice interacting with their peers. During the camp, children have the chance to play games that they may encounter at school while talking, playing, and connecting with other children.
Both March groups will meet daily, starting on March 16. Monster Munchers will meet from March 16 to 19 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., while Camp Canoe will meet from March 16 to 20 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Class sizes for both of these March groups are limited; Monster Munchers is only open to four children, while Camp Canoe offers space for eight children. Parents who are interested in getting more information about either group or signing their children up for one of the camps are encouraged to do so by visiting Canoe Therapy's website. While all of Monster Munchers spots are filled, fortunately Camp Canoe still has spots available so act fast to sign your child up!
