Full Circle is a recreational program for youth 3-14 who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other Sensory Processing Challenges.
This program provides recreational health and wellness opportunities to children with unique needs. The participants in the program will have the opportunity to participate in a "full circle" of programs designed for success in areas of their physical, social, and emotional well-being. Our hope is that these extraordinary kids and families will realize the fun benefits of wellness and recreational programs in a supportive and nurturing environment. Full Circle is currently being ran at both the East and West Side Y locations.
This is a 35 week long program where the children will select 5 areas of interest throughout their year of participation. They will participate in each class for 7 weeks. Classes may include:
Sensory Splash Swim Class
- Ninja Warrior
- Learning with Legos
- Music and Movement
- Sports and Skill Development
- Group and Social Games
- Mad Science
- Hands on Art
