Sunkids is a therapeutic summer program open to all children 3-10 years-old, who are fully potty-trained and have the ability to work in groups. Sunkids is run by occupational, physical, and speech therapists as well as trained volunteers.
Planned events and activities include water play, music, pet day, crafts, walking field trips, as well as gross motor and sensory motor play. These activities are used to facilitate gross and fine motor skills, social interaction, and play in a safe and fun environment.
CDK also offers a separate one-week summer handwriting clinic designed to give children a jump-start on handwriting prior to starting the new school year. The development of skills necessary to provide foundations for good handwriting are addressed through a multi-sensory approach, including upper body strength and stability, postural control, fine motor skills and dexterity, visual perceptual skills, and eye-hand coordination. This clinic is taught by occupational therapists that specialize in handwriting.
CDK services include Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Nutrition Therapy.
