Oscar Nominated film and book Life, Animated is about the life of Owen Suskind. Owen was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. He lost speech and it seemed his ability to connect to others until his family started to use the very thing that he loved: Disney Animated Film. This is a beautiful story of using a child's affinity to bring us all together. Christine Sproat had the priviledge to work as Owen's OT from the time he was 5 years old starting at a Sensory Integration Camp. Owen is now in his twenties, graduated from an adaptive college program and is living on his own in a supervised communilty with his dog Guss.

 Leaping Lizards

Sensory and Handwriting Summer Camp 

At Canyon Kids Pediatric Occupational Therapy Services

Canyon Kids is proud to offer our 5th annual Leaping Lizards summer camp!  Our camp will focus on improving fine motor, handwriting, motor planning and social skills to better prepare for Kindergarten and 1st grade.

We will use sensory integration strategies and curriculums including: Handwriting without Tears, Fine Motor Olympics and Social Thinking to support the development of those skills. Each day your child will participate in circle time, creating a collective mural during tactile time, sensory rich obstacle courses, arts and crafts activities, handwriting a letter of the day, and make-your-own snack.  

We will provide a fine motor kit that your child will take home each week, along with a dry erase binder with handwriting activities. Staff will be comprised of Canyon Kids Occupational Therapists and experienced camp volunteers will also be present to maintain a small counselor-to-camper ratio.

Runs for 4 weeks in July

Monday through Friday 9:30 am-12pm at the Canyon Kids office

Kids ages 4 to 6 years

There will be a maximum of 6 kids in the camp.
