Coming back from a trip with Miska
In August 2016 Autistic Centre Andreas organized day camps for children with autism again. At the camp we had six children, each of them had their therapist. This is mainly because most children were from the external environment. Camp lasted five days, which is a really short time for exploring, but it is the time needed for parents to relax. Immediately after the camp we asked parents if they would like a two-week camp next year. Camp is financed mainly through project "For parents, without parents", and that means thanks to you, our donors. Thank you very much.
Lets look at the experencie through the eyes of our logopedics doctor Gabrielle. For her it was the first summer camp in our center.
"The first day on Monday, we were getting to know each other with Miška. We were in the therapeutic room in which Miška has regular therapy. Since she's been in the room he knew, she helped me discover what toys are hiding there. While Miska picked those toys, I named them and I've watched her play. Later, we made a little trip with other children to the monument on the nearby hills.
On Tuesday morning Miška brought her new friend the Bear to the center. It was almost as big as herself. Since the Bear was the main subject of fun and we had a prearranged plan for the day it had to come with us to see the park. In the forest park there were surprisingly many children. Miška just stood there and watched what was happening around. On the way back she was really tired and fell asleep immediately after lunch.
On Wednesday we went to firefighters station. Miška enjoyed the trip on trolley. Watching the road traffic and passing people interested her a lot. Of course the Bear was there to see it. She tried everything at the station. She even allowed firefighters to ride her on sliding platform. While we waited for the trolley Miška gave me first hug.
On Thursday we visited the zoo. Lion and tiger was her favorite animals there. When we returned back to Andreas I taught her how to do "Tap, Tap Tapuška" a nic game for kids. We were laughing and made eye contact.
The last day was divided into several activities. First we were in the garden where we were jumping on a trampoline and swung on a swing. Then we painted a painting with all the other children from camp. We ended the day on obstacle course in the gym, which she passed quickly. Finally, like all other children she ended up in a ball pool. "
