We are a non-profit organization that offers summer social skills playgroups full of fun and friends! We are a unique organization that aims to teach children of all abilities how to socialize and play together in a fun and safe environment!!!
Summer buddies aims to provide a safe, fun and nurturing place to play and develop social skills during the summer. By providing a supportive and inclusive environment, children are empowered with tools needed to build meaningful friendships. Summer Buddies exposes children to individuals with a diverse range of abilities. We also aim to meet the needs of families and community volunteers by providing networking opportunities and educational resources.
What We Do:
Our 6 week social skills play groups take place between June 24, 2013, through August 3, 2013. We hold two sessions a day 3 days a week. Summer Buddies directly teaches social skills and play skills to children of all abilities, while incorporating fine & gross motor, sensory regulation and communication skills. We provide both developmentally and age appropriate play groups for children ages 2-8 with and without disabilities. Your child will benefit greatly from the direct instruction in social skills and facilitation of natural play throughout the session. Summer Buddies uses a variety of strategies, programs and methods to provide differentiated facilitation and support the needs of each child.
