My son was having difficulty integrating with peers. He often used inappropriate ways to get kids to play rather than ask (e.g, play too close or interfere without saying anything). Now he is understanding better that you have to communicate and ask if others are interested in playing. He is also beginning to understand that you need to conform in a team sport.
My son had a hard time socializing with other children and did not want to participate in activities or if he did, they ended badly. Now, when we go to Teamwork Wins’ Connections Camp, he never wants to leave. In fact, he wants to know when he will be back! My son feels accepted in this group of children and can relax and be a kid!
My son refused to play any team sports. This was causing problems during gym. Now he will play soccer at Connections Camp.
My daughter had no awareness that her actions were being portrayed as flirty to boys and all she wanted was to be friends. Connections Camp helped her with learning how her facial expressions and actions can be misconstrued. Also how she presents herself, i.e. clothing, cleanliness, etc., is important.
I just wanted to tell you how much (our son) liked the Tai Chi last Saturday. I was stunned when he showed me the moves he learned – as were his OT and psychologist. His demeanor changes immediately when he does it. He immediately has a very calm expression on his face and he moves deliberately. How wonderful to see him so calm. I hope you plan to keep this up and use it throughout the summer as well.
My son is more aware of his conversational topics when speaking with peers. He can be easily prompted to “stop blabbering” when he goes off on some tangent in which others aren’t interested. His time at Summer Connections Camp helped him with this.
My daughter is new to Teamwork Wins weekend club. She is still in the beginning progress of learning to make eye contact and responding.
(Our four-year-old son)… ended up going last Thursday to the Express Yourself Program…He loved it so much he asked if he could go every Thursday and Friday so we sent him to both this week.
