Social Skills Group
the social skills group allows children to improve social, communication, and play skills in a small peer group. the main goal of the group is to help children feel confident and successful in social situations by providing a structured and supportive environment in which to explore and play. each week, the group plays seated and active games, eats a snack together, has a lesson/group discussion time, and goes out to the playground (weather permitting). the group serves children with a variety of challenges, including HFa, pddnos, add/adHd, anxiety, and sensory processing/integration issues, as well as those without an official label who are having trouble making friends. each group consists of a facilitator, instructor (Kate mcClain), and one-to-two assistants and is limited to a maximum of eight children to ensure an optimal amount of attention for each child. We ask for an eight week commitment at a time, but the program is ongoing as long as your child is working on specific outcomes. the class is specifically designed for children who can interact verbally with minimal prompts; staff will screen participants to determine eligibility. registration will be handled through the screening process. if you are interested, please contact the therapeutic recreation office at 703-228-4736 or trinfo@arlingtonva.us to set up a screening for eligibility in a group. Cost is $32 per class/per week. langston-Brown, rm. 106.

Femmes FITales is a medium/high intensity, varied workout designed for women. We use weights, medicine balls and our own body weight to make us stronger. We emphasize core strength training and endurance and have two days a week of intense cardio exercise. The format changes from week to week, and you’ll never have the same workout twice. Every other Friday, we devote the entire class to stretching and core exercises, so you’ll also have a chance to work flexibility and balance. Class size is small so you'll get individual attention, encouragement and coaching. We meet every weekday morning, rain or shine from 5:45 to 6:45 a.m. at Williamsburg Middle School in Arlington. No class on Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s day, or if Arlington County Schools are closed due to inclement weather. If you want to get into shape, meet fun people and be pushed harder than you will push yourself, Femmes FITales is for you.

Are You Taking a Swimming Class?
Arlington County is proud to provide lessons that are based on the Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program. When registering please make sure participants can complete all necessary prerequisites prior to beginning the class. Student who are not at the right level hinder the classes’ ability to function. Everyone progresses at different speeds, so it is typical to repeat courses. Public Health requires pools to close when contaminated. Swim diapers or snug-fitting plastic pants must be worn by anyone who is incontinent. Also please do not eat within 30 minutes of swimming. Children under nine years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times in the building. Children under five must have a guardian in the water with them when class is not in session. The pool is only available during class times. If participants or family members wish to swim before or after class they must pay a general admission fee at the front desk.
