Are you looking for a summer group that will keep your child engaged in fun, interactive activities?
Welcome to our summer group!
Upon arrival to BTH, your child will be greeted and given a choice of a room to play.
Children will rotate between activities as a team member facilitates play and developmental skills.
In our "Language and Literacy" room, skills such as role playing, sequencing, positional concepts, vocabulary, making associations, increasing use of spontaneous language, increasing the length and complexity of their language, answering questions, asking questions, expanding on language using descriptive words, verbal turn-taking, and responding to peers using age-appropriate language will be targeted.
In our "Fine Motor/Constructive Play" room, skills such as problem solving, sequencing steps, building structures, writing letters and drawing pictures will be the focus.
In our "Gross Room" motor, skills such as working together with partners, looking toward the person talking to you, turn-taking, using words to describe feelings, sharing, using an appropriate volume level, responding to unexpected events, appropriate behavior when with others, defending possessions appropriately, asking questions to peers, answering questions, commenting, expressing thoughts, and joining peers already playing.
In our "Sensory/Exploratory Room," the children will explore different consistencies within the sensory table. Hand strengthening activities will be focus during table top activities.
Due to COVID-19, we will not have a snack, but encourage each child to bring a water bottle with his/her name on it.
During large group, children will participate in circle where the focus will be on group participation, remaining with the group, and answering questions.
Groups are designed for children ages 3 through 6 years old – this includes all children –typically developing children and children with needs (speech, language, fine motor, gross motor, or cognitive delays).

We utilize a visual schedule, movement, objects to represent vocabulary and concepts, visuals, step-by-step communicators, and a communication device so that all children, regardless of their developmental level, can participate.
