The Nite Owls is group started over 20+ years ago as a social group for Jewish teens with special needs. The group stayed together over the years and has grown into a special needs group for all adults in the community. The Owls participate in many activities throughout the year including arts and crafts, athletics, cooking, yoga, Jewish and secular holiday celebrations and field trips. The program also allows for families of the group members to interact with each other and form a support network. Through community involvement, the group hopes to decrease the stigma surrounding people with special needs. You do not have to be Jewish to join the group, but you do have to be a member of the J Community Center. Single adult memberships are available as well as scholarships for those who qualify.
Karol Musher STARS Early Childhood Intervention Program is designed to enable preschool children with language, social pragmatic and sensory motor challenges to attain skills required for transition into traditional school settings. The program provides multi-disciplinary intervention in a highly structured, language based, creative and nurturing environment within a Jewish setting. Families are collaborative partners in the ongoing observation, treatment and education of our students. Children have the opportunity to develop communication, play and social skills with typical peer groups at a traditional preschool campus.
Other activites for children with disabilities include an adapted aquatics program, gymnastics (Gymnastics Super Stars) and a soccer (TOPSoccer) program.
