This week I received the South Suburban Special Recreation Association's fall magazine and wanted to share it with your children. It will be coming home with them today (09/15) or tomorrow (09/16). Even though the deadline for Fall Registration has passed, the guidelines state that you can still register (without guarantee of getting in the program) if you feel that an activity will benefit your child. It has a lot of offerings for students with disabilities including sports, art, social opportunities and more.
I know that most of our students are excited to join after school activities, but we also know that our CD Students need extra support to understand social rules and relationships, that is typically not offered at a local park district or Andrew After School Activity. SSSRA provides wonderful experiences for our students, with the added needed support and care. In addition, part of your child's transition plan is to explore interests and strength areas. Joining a club, with the needed level of supports, would help them form focused and appropriate goals for future success.
I typically don't receive the magazines until after the registration deadline, but you can always go online to see the opportunities and stay in touch with SSSRA opportunities at: http://www.sssra.org/
Finally, this month, keep an eye out for the CD Program's staff supported after school activity: Bowling Club. We will stay after school for an hour and travel to Orland Bowl to bowl 6 times first semester and 6 times second semester. The cost is between $3-5 per game. More details to come!
