Once a month on P.L.A.Y. Saturday from 10 A.M to noon, the children at Achieve Fluency will be building Peer-a-Mids. Not the kind of magnificent structures found in Egypt, but something far more important to children with ASD, LD, ADHD and other related challenges. We're going to build friendships through P.L.A.Y.- Positive Learning Activities for Youngsters.
With students from St. Luke's School serving as role models we will be using Michelle Garcia Winner's Friendship Peer-a-Mid as the basis for our P.L.A.Y. Saturdays. Through Lego building, arts and crafts, science experiments and other fun, age appropriate activities we'll also lay the foundation of friendship building. Playing and making friends can be the most challenging aspects of our children's lives. By playing with and watching how "typical" children interact we'll work on appropriate greetings; how to distinguish between an acquaintance, and a close friend. We'll consider how friendships develop from possible, to evolving, to bonded. "On again, off again" friendships will be explored along with the appropriate use of social media such as friending on Facebook. And we'll have fun!
Plan on joining us for P.L.A.Y. Saturdays at Achieve Fluency. We'll be having fun and building friendship Peer-a-Mids from 10 A.M. to noon at 456 Glenbrook Road., Stamford. Please call or email us for more information or to reserve a spot.
