Small Classes at SCC
For children with attention deficit disorder, some with hyperactivity, trying to learn in overcrowded classrooms can seem like a set of rules that they can never follow. Sit still, don’t talk, stand in line, it’s time for math class-please focus, be quiet, where is your homework, stay on task….it can feel impossible.
At the Spafford Children’s Center, the teachers, social workers, and therapists understand and are ready to help. First there are small classes—two to four students with one dedicated teacher—in English, Arabic, and math that reduce the distractions and teach children to focus and experience success. SCC uses up-to-date teaching methods for children with learning disabilities, trauma reactions, and behavioral challenges. Children are assessed when they come to SCC so a plan can be created and then assessed again during and after the courses to document the progress and need for additional services. Children at SCC make amazing improvement and find the love of learning. Help maintain these services by giving through GlobalGiving at https://goto.gg/31839.
Then, there are physical activities to burn energy and build self-esteem and the ability to work with other kids. Gymnastics, for example, is new to SCC and the kids love doing back bends, mastering somersaults, and climbing on padded stairs and balls. Plus, they learn to do controlled movements as part of a line of kids all jumping and twirling in unison.
Please help the Spafford Children’s Center continue these services by donating through GlobalGiving at https://goto.gg/31839. You are just two clicks away from supporting Palestinian children and families who need educational, therapeutic, and recreational services.
