Small Steps Camp Program

Small Steps: An Ometz Occupational and Speech Therapy Camp Program

The Small Steps program runs from July 4th to August 11th, 2017 | 9am - 4pm (4 weeks minimum)
The deadline to submit your application is June 9th, 2017. 

Ometz has partnered with YCC day camp and McGill University to offer Small Steps, a unique program that brings together specialized services and a whole camp experience.
We provide occupational and speech therapy services for children between the ages of 4-10 years old. As part of their camp experience, children who experience mild to moderate developmental delays have access to therapeutic supports designed to blend with fun filled summer activities such as: arts and crafts, land sports, exciting field trips and BBQ’s.
Over a 6 week period, the Ometz team of  OTs and SLPs and McGill Master’s students work in close collaboration with YCC day camp staff. The goal of Small Steps is to help children build confidence in communication, foster peer relationships and enhance social skills in a happy and supportive atmosphere.
This program benefits children who have:

  1. Difficulties with transition skills; sitting still; tying shoelaces; writing the alphabet; playing well with peers
  2. Mild to moderate delays in speech and language; gross and fine motor delays
  3. Social Communication Disorder in the absence of Autism
  4. Apraxia of speech

Prior to filling out the application forms below, please make sure that you have all the relevant information regarding current evaluations, medical information and consents to complete the intake process. After your child has been accepted to Small Steps, you will still have to register with YCC day camp.
