Sensory Storytime

Ages 3 - 6 with a Caregiver.  Sensory Storytime is an interactive program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who are sensitive to sensory overload or have other special needs, and those who have difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime.  A parent or caregiver is required to attend with their child.  Participants will enjoy stories, songs, and a variety of sensory activities. Because this is a specialized storytime, registration is required for each session and is limited to 8 children, with priority given to those children for whom this program is designed.

Sensory Storytime will be led by Jessica Horvath, a certified speech-language pathologist.  This program is funded by a grant from The Weller Foundation.

Butterfly Program

 

The Butterfly Program This event reviews the material taught in The Butterfly Program classes, a crash course for: building self-confidence on the inside and outside, learning how to manage stress, navigate relationships and understand the underlying impact of social media. 

A girl who has positive self-talk, knows and appreciates her strengths and values and is positive and grateful, is a girl who has a strong foundation in place for a successful and happy future.  The Butterfly Program will address poignant topics that affect today's girls, including self-confidence, stress, and relationships.

Regina Dubois is a Certified Professional Coach through Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and has certifications from University of Pennsylvania in Positive Psychology.  This along with the fact that she is a mother to two daughters in middle school has motivated her to offer classes that will help girls feel more confident in themselves and provide skills that can establish life-long well-being.

This program is open to middle-school girls. Registration is required.

Sensory Storytime

Ages 3 - 6 with a Caregiver.  Sensory Storytime is an interactive program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who are sensitive to sensory overload or have other special needs, and those who have difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime.  A parent or caregiver is required to attend with their child.  Participants will enjoy stories, songs, and a variety of sensory activities. Because this is a specialized storytime, registration is required for each session and is limited to 8 children, with priority given to those children for whom this program is designed.

Sensory Storytime will be led by Jessica Horvath, a certified speech-language pathologist.  This program is funded by a grant from The Weller Foundation.

Bodybuilding and Building Bodies: Upgrades from Nature and Technology

Presented by the Yale Science Diplomats. Speakers: Andrew Morgan, Brooks Leitner, Olivia Justynski

Through studying the lasting effects of exercise on our organs and bodily systems, designing robots that enhance body functions, and investigating how animals can regrow body parts—scientists are leaving no stone unturned to build better and more adaptive bodies.

Sensory Storytime

Ages 3 - 6 with a Caregiver.  Sensory Storytime is an interactive program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who are sensitive to sensory overload or have other special needs, and those who have difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime.  A parent or caregiver is required to attend with their child.  Participants will enjoy stories, songs, and a variety of sensory activities. Because this is a specialized storytime, registration is required for each session and is limited to 8 children, with priority given to those children for whom this program is designed.

Sensory Storytime will be led by Jessica Horvath, a certified speech-language pathologist.  This program is funded by a grant from The Weller Foundation.
