Capitol School of Austin’s 2020 Summer Enrichment Camp program,
Growing our School Family is designed to help children with challenges in the following areas build skills to reach their full potential:
CSA offers a fun and enriching summer learning experience in a supportive and compassionate environment for children identified as having speech, language and/or learning differences.
This summer we are offering a 4-week program for children ages 2 years-old through 3rd grade. Each camp group is led by a speech-language pathologist (SLP) or a special educator using a group therapy-based, multi-sensory approach. Students are placed in camp groups by our admissions committee based on each student’s language ability, academic level, social skills and age.
Typically-developing students also benefit from our small-group program and positive social setting while providing a language model for classroom peers.
If your child is not currently enrolled at CSA, you will need to complete an application and meet admission criteria (including a one-day visit) before being placed in a camp group. Please visit capitolschool.com/admissions to download an application packet.
Does your child have a difficult time with writing? Is his or her handwriting difficult to read? If so, CSA is offering two summer handwriting camps led by our licensed Occupational Therapists.
These low-ratio camps use a fun, multi-sensory approach to improve skills involved in your child’s handwriting, including: core stability, ocular motor control, fine motor control, letter formation, elimination of common errors, and self-assessment/self-correction.
I'm Ready to Write
A small group, OT-led writing readiness class for 4-5 year olds, entering preschool or Kindergarten in the fall and develops readiness in motor and perceptual skills that serve as the foundation for handwriting. Activities focus on body and spatial awareness with multi-sensory activities for learning shapes, letters and numbers while developing fine motor skills needed for pencil use.
I Can Write
For children who have completed Kindergarten or 1st grade and need extra practice with writing skills. Emphasis is on a multi-sensory approach for learning letter and number formation, development of fine motor skills for pencil use and good posture habits as a foundation for writing efficiency. This small group, OT-led class is appropriate for children from 5-7 years old or based on handwriting skill level.
