Help prepare activity kits for early childhood special education classes!
Children's Therapy Center
We are looking for a volunteer to help prepare Activity Kits to supplement virtual education classes provided by a special educator, through our new CTC Boost Program. If you have an interest in child development, art, crafts, special education, early learning, or child and families services, this is a great opportunity to lend a helping hand while gaining some exposure to these related fields!
As an Activity Kit Volunteer, you will play an important role in providing families with hands-on materials needed to enhance and engage young children while attending virtual education classes. The classes provide children an opportunity to learn and practice a variety of skills in different developmental areas like; motor, language, and communication, social, emotional, and cognitive, to help prepare them for school and community settings.
More specifically, the Boost Program classes aim to provide children between the ages 3-5 with temporary classes and support, while they wait to be connected to long-term services, such as developmental preschool, ECEAP, or other community programs.
Each month you will assist the special educators in preparing and assembling kits for art, sensory, music, and story activities related to a specific monthly theme.
About Children's Therapy Center
10811 Kent Kangley Rd., Kent, WA 98031, US
At Children’s Therapy Center, we are on a mission to maximize the potential of children with special needs. We provide individualized, family-centered therapy including early intervention services, early childhood special education, physical, occupational and speech therapy. In partnership with parents and caregivers, we celebrate where each child is today and work toward who they can become.
In 1979, three therapists passionately devoted to serving children with special needs came together to form Children’s Therapy Center. What started as a small program based in the waiting room of a doctor’s office has grown to become the most comprehensive nonprofit pediatric therapy center in Washington, serving over 3,000 children every year.
From the beginning, our goal has been to provide quality therapeutic services designed to empower children with special needs and their families. Our founders - Sue Hudson, Nancy Hylton and Gay Lloyd Pinder - created a program of quality, individualized physical, occupational, and speech therapy, with a strong emphasis on parent involvement.
Our goal is to help every child achieve maximum independence so they can experience the same opportunities and quality of life as other children. Our approach has always been family-focused. It is ultimately through the efforts of parents and other caregivers that a child is able to reach their full potential.
