Step Up Your Writing

Step Up Your Writing

The Educational Therapy Center is offering a summer writing camp during two different months. Four days of small group sessions will focus on improving writing skills. There are two different sessions to choose from or come to both as each will be a bit different. As always at the Educational Therapy Center, multisensory presentations will take the steps from the simplest to the most complex:  Brainstorming and organizing ideas  Visualizing and then expressing your ideas  Writing good sentences that follow the mechanics of grammar and punctuation.  Recognition of parts of speech and their relationships in a good sentence.  Writing games and other fun activities will be part of the sessions.  Organizing for paragraph writing and more. All students must be rising to the 3rd grade or higher. Smaller groupings will be based on abilities and ages. There must be a minimum of four students to hold each session of this camp with a limit of 10. The cost of the writing camp is $200 per student. There is a $50 deposit due at sign-up to hold a slot. The balance is due by June 8 or July 20th. A cancellation made before 30 days prior to the camp will receive a 50% refund of the deposit. Current or former students enrolled at the Educational Therapy Center will be given a 10% discount. Anyone signing up for both sessions will also get a 10% discount.
