Parkour

Superhero Parkour Classes are provided through the Superhuman Academy and are offered seasonal with each session lasting 4-8 weeks. Students move through the program alongside their parents before joining our transition class. Upon completion of our transition class, students can choose to stay or move into one of our general weekday programs. Each class is taught by certified parkour coaches with facilitation from an OT.
Why Parkour?
Parkour is an amazing activity for anyone who struggles with coordination, body awareness, self-confidence, spatial awareness, and participation in traditional sports and activities. Parkour combines fundamental movements so that the participant can fall safely, move through varying environments successfully, maneuver different obstacles easily, and transfer these skills to every other area of their life.

  

 



Play & Movement
At My Pace & Outdoor Explorers

At My Pace

Objective:

Participants will be exposed to social opportunities, outdoor games, common elementary sports, and body movement challenges in a small group of peers. These activities include tag, soccer, football, playground movement challenges, hide and seek, red light green light, tug of war, 500, groundies, and other games around executing new and unfamiliar movements on a trail. We address the following skills: motor planning, body awareness, social skills, postural insecurity, gravitational insecurity, sequencing, multi-tasking, and confidence. Other outcomes of this program include initiating and participating in social interactions and friendships, developing an awareness of surrounding school and outdoor environments, developing interests and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle, promote friendships, and improve confidence, and learning how to be comfortable in their own skin.

Description:

This small group will meet once per week. Group size will be limited to 4-5 participants per group. This program is recommended for children ages 5-15 who are working on exploring different leisure environments and activities, improving their confidence with social interactions and movement, and looking to increase their interests. We will determine whether this would be a good program for your child after the initial interview.

 

Outdoor Explorers

Objective:

Participants will be exposed to social opportunities and outdoor activities through active outdoor play and exploration using local trails, open space, parks, and recreational venues in Boulder County. Through this program, participants will build skills to increase their familiarity and interest in outdoor activities. Other outcomes of this program include initiating and participating in social interactions and friendships, developing an awareness of their surrounding environment, developing outdoor interests and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle, and learning how to use the natural world to benefit them.

Description:

This small group will meet twice per week (however, look at the ‘when’ section). Group size will be limited to 4 participants. This program is recommended for children ages 5-15 who are working on tolerating and exploring outdoor environments and activities as well as children who either like to be active in the outdoors or who are limited to indoor activities and are looking to explore their interests. We will determine whether this would be a good program for your child after the initial interview.

 



Music
Hear Me Roar & Voices Together

Hear Me Roar

Objective:

Participants will engage in musical activities to practice and improve their social and communication skills. Through this program, participants will engage in timing and rhythm activities, learn how to take turns and listen to others, work in a group through music, identify basic notes, and improvise using their voices and bodies. Other outcomes of this program include increasing self-confidence and developing friendships.

Description:

This small group will meet weekly for 1 to 1.5 hours, one day per week. Group size will be limited to 6 participants. This program is recommended for children ages 8-14 who would benefit from non-traditional language, communication, and social skills practice. Participants are encouraged to do this class with their sibling(s) and/or friends, especially during the first two weeks and the last four weeks of the program. Parents and/or siblings participate in the last 20-30 minutes of the class to learn and practice the skills that were introduced. The curriculum follows a set of sequential activities, but is very much changed and adapted to the individual participants.

Sing & Breathe

Objective:

This is an inclusive choir that focuses on singing and breathing as a group. Through this program, participants will develop the skills to modulate their voices, breathe effectively, engage in conversation with appropriate affect, move and sing, listen to others, and sing in a group. Other outcomes of this program are increasing self-confidence, developing awareness of the social subtleties that surround interactions, improving rate of speech, and increasing their ability to convey emotions, needs, wants, and creative thoughts to their parents, siblings, friends, and teachers or coaches.

Description:

This small group will meet twice per week (however, look at the ‘when’ section). Group size will be limited to 10 participants. This program is recommended for children ages 5-15 who like to sing and express themselves, but who hve difficulty succeeding in a traditional choir setting.
