Children with Asperger's, Sensory Integration needs, ADHD, PDD, High Functioning Autism need a Summer Day Camp. Now they have one in Atlanta.
This summer we are again offering our popular full day summer camp for children who receive OT for Sensory Integration issues - ideal for children with Asperger's ADHD and children on the Autism Spectrum aged 5 to 11 years. We have been offering this camp since 2007. We call our camp PEOTSI Day Camp, Activity Based & Sensory-Driven. P.E./O.T./S.I stands for P.E. for kids receiving O.T. due to S.I. Dysfunction
Assumes children learn by doing! We understand the importance of movement to overall development. Everything we do requires a child's brain to integrate many areas simultaneously. And that lays the foundation for more advanced physical, social, and academic learning.
Assures that each child's particular sensory make-up is considered. Some kids crave mud, while others avoid it. We try to satiate the cravers while expanding the comfort zone of the avoiders. And we find the best mud in town! Some kids love to swing, others suffer from gravitational insecurity. We make sure both kids have a great experience on a rope swing. And we don't give a kid a "time out" if he decides to beat on a rock with a stick… we give him a bigger stick!
Means no horror stories about "camp counselors" making poor decisions due to a lack of understanding of these aforementioned basics. We are real professionals with real credentials and years of work experience.
For so many of our campers, the "How Does Your Engine Run?" program has been very meaningful. Each day at camp begins with a group engine check. The PEOTSI Day Camp provides a long day of fun, stimulating activities. Any child who needs to escape the camp's routine has several options. Among those options are the "Moon Room"and the playground.
The Moon Room is lit with black lights which illuminate lots of day-glow stars, moons, and squishy toys. It is lined with crash cushions, mats, and pillows.
Every day begins at the playground. The playground looks like an OT clinic in the trees. There are multiple zip lines, rope swings, tire swings, slide tubes, platforms, and cargo nets...all built into the trees of a beautiful wooded area.
