This program offers participants of all abilities the opportunity to use their 5 senses (taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight) in activities that are engaging and promote teamwork and communication. Classes allow for participants to socialize with others in a safe and controlled environment. Participants are encouraged to participate through hands-on activities and lessons that encourage self-regulation and calming strategies. Activities include painting, building sensory tubs, creating stress balls, and more!
