This year Emerge is pleased to offer seven summer programs, ranging from Preschool Power for our younger children to our newest programs: Creative Writing and InterACTing for older children.


Led by a speech pathologist, InterACTing will use drama as the medium for helping young people expand their social and communication skills. For children 8-12 years old.

Creative Writers

Developed based on a request from a parent. Led by Kelly, one of our speech therapists, Creative Writers will help take older students to that next level of writing, incorporating shared experiences and visual imagery into their writing

Capable Kindergarteners and Ready Writers

Popular programs that Emerge has offered since its inception. These programs are designed for children who will be attending typical classrooms who need help developing writing skills, including fine and visual motor foundations. This year we are expanding these programs to be a full morning for 4 days. As a result, we will be able to incorporate more sensorimotor activities in the always popular OT gym.

Cool Cats

Our program designed to teach coping strategies for children with anxiety has evolved into a year round program. (Formerly known as Staying Cool).

Preschool Power and Recipe For Fun

Collaborations between Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. They both include a strong language and social component and are appropriate for children with mild to moderate speech and/or language delays, sensory processing/ integration disorders, challenges with social interactions, Asperger’s Syndrome or high functioning autism, and/or mild developmental delays.
