On April 25, 2016, STAR Center in Greenwood Village, Colorado announced its 2016 summer sensory friendly children’s activity schedule, which now includes Bike Riding Camp and toddler classes in addition to Social Skills Camps. STAR Center is the premier treatment center for children and families impacted by Sensory Processing Disorder and feeding disorders, ADHD, autism and other developmental disorders.

STAR Center is offering their first Bike Riding Camp taking place August 8-12 for children ages 3-10 years. This camp uses the Strider® learning method combined with enjoyable therapist led activities while catering to all levels. Each child will have individualized goals in a fun and low-pressure environment where children are encouraged to discover the joy and independence of riding a bike.

Sometimes children need a little help learning the subtleties of social skills so they can form enriching relationships with their peers. STAR Center’s Social Skills Summer Camps increase each child’s ability to self-regulate in social interactions, build social cognition and awareness, expand communication, improve problem-solving skills, and encourage interactive play skills. Social skills lessons are taught within the context of multi sensory-based games and play while meeting a child’s individual sensory needs. The program is geared for verbal children that have basic peer awareness and would benefit from therapeutic activities to build reciprocal interactions. These positive experiences are foundational building blocks for a child’s social development. Social Skills Group Camps run June 13-24 and July 11-22.

STAR Center is now hosting toddler classes led by Belly Bliss, Denver’s premier pregnancy center. The Play + Explore toddler classes for children ages 1-3 years take place every Friday throughout the summer. Caregivers and their children will participate in structured activities through yoga, movement, sensory play, and music. Each class will include activities specific to each age child’s motor development, emotional stage, and social development. Siblings are welcome, with the understanding that activities will be directed for the 1-3 year age group. There will be time after class to explore STAR Center’s world famous sensory playground.
