Hocus Focus is a student-centered, experiential-learning program for students with varying degrees of educational challenges and abilities. The workshops are designed to support the learning of all students including autistic, cognitive delayed, emotional disturbed, and learning disabled students. Workshop activities combine education and imagination to help children improve their abilities in planning, sequencing, organizing tasks and movements, fine motor skills, gross motor function/coordination, concentration, memory skills, communication, social behaviors, and more. The workshops are a powerful means of drawing on these multiple learning modalities allowing children to learn facts and concepts they can see, touch, manipulate, and talk about.
Space is limited to 20 people including caretakers, and the workshop is first come, first served.
