Happy Sunday!

Tomorrow is our last Summer SAILS session. We hope that your teen learned some new life and social skills that can be used be the future. Since it is our last day before school starts, the plan is to meet in front of the ticket office at the Fort in St. Augustine at 10: 30 am. If you prefer that your teen ride with his or her therapist, please confirm this with your therapist. We will leave the clinic by 9:45 am at the latest so if your teen is riding with his or her therapist please arrive by 9:30 am. Have your teen bring a bagged lunch tomorrow because we will have a picnic lunch after the Fort. The fort is 15 dollars per person for individuals over 16 and free for individuals under 16. We will have a cooler if you teen needs to keep their lunch refrigerated. If time permits, we'll do the Guana Park/Museum afterwards. We will leave St. Augustine by 2:30 PM to return to the clinic by 3:30/4 pm.

Be on time tomorrow, supply your teen with 15 dollars (if necessary), and make sure your child brings a bagged lunch! See you soon!

There has been a slight change of plans... tomorrow we will NOT be attending the Krispy Kreme Tour. Instead, we will go to the Fort Caroline National Memorial and have lunch at the clinic. Please pack a lunch for your teen. If you have any questions or concerns please call or text me at 443-996-9471. Admission to the Memorial is 5 dollars but if you would prefer that your child not go the memorial let his or her therapist know.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Tomorrow the teens will be preparing for a mock career fair on July 8. Teens will learn appropriate interview questions and how to communicate their wants and needs in a job. After teens will take a trip to the mall and learn how to shop for appropriate work attire. Students will not need to buy anything at Kohl’s but will need money for lunch at Panera. We will have lunch at Panera before going shopping at Kohl’s. We will leave for lunch at 12:30 and return to the clinic at 4:00. Pick up at the clinic unless otherwise specified.

On July 15, teens will have lunch in house but have another outing to the grocery store. Please send your teen to the clinic with at least 10 dollars on both days.

Text or call John B or Reeva if you have questions or concerns. 443-996-9471

We will head to to the store at 12:30 pm. Pick up is at the clinic unless otherwise arranged.

We are excited for our first outing tomorrow! Please be sure to send whatever amount of money may be necessary for cost. This is a great opportunity for the kids/teens to practice money skills in the community as well! Parents - please also ensure that you have the contact information for your therapist! The group leads are Reeva Morton, 443-996-9471, and John Borthwick, 904-610-9153, in the event parents need to get ahold of the group at any time, if your therapist is not able to respond to your call or texts! Each therapist will have the contact information for each client as well! Thanks so much!

We are looking forward to an exciting and educational summer with our Monday activities! Mornings will consist of activities unique to each client's needs and goals, with clients splitting off individually and/or into smaller groups or pairings with their therapists. Lunch activities will occur between 12 - 1 and will be either in clinic or off-site (we will let you know ahead of time and you are welcome to send a lunch if you prefer not to have your child purchase one, either way). Afternoon outings will occur between 1 - 4 as a large group! We will have releases for each parent to sign before outings. Please be sure to let your individual therapists know when you plan to miss a day because we hope to see you every Monday.

This message board will be a great way to stay in touch and in the know about activities and any changes! Please sign up for email alerts!
