The R.A.P. Room is an After School program supporting children with disabilities. Our after school classrooms are inviting, soothing and relaxing. Participants receive specialized support from their special needs counselor, classroom supervisor, and our social services team. Counselors support children on an individual and small group basis with their academic work during homework help time. Post completion of homework, there is time for inclusion-based activities such as karate, dance, arts and crafts, art therapy, zumba, nature, baking, meditation time, theme-based projects, and more.
