The Joshua Center is a non-profit organization that provides services and support for the social, emotional, and educational needs of neurologically impaired children and their families, including children with Tourette Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD.
Occupational Therapy helps people engage in everyday activities (or occupations) to the best of their ability. Whether it’s eating, sleeping, working, dressing, academics, playing, socializing or participating in leisure activities, our ability to participate and engage fully in these daily activities can have a major impact on our overall quality of life.
Join us February 11th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm as Julie Morrow, MOTR/L teaches us about how looking at behaviors through a sensory lens can give you insight about your child’s “sensory personality”.
Join us for a fun Painting Party at the Joshua Center on Saturday, February 20th from 12:00 – 2:00 pm, where we will be painting something Royals themed! A professional painter from Apple Pie Painting will be leading the program. Each child will take home their own masterpiece!
Are you an education professional dealing with anger, rage and aggression? Are you looking for a way to help the kids and diffuse the situation before it gets out of control? Join us for an all day conference on February 26th from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, lead by Mike Sumler, LMFT.
The Joshua Center is hosting our first ever “Krafts 4 Kids” craft show! We will have vendors set up selling several types of hand-made items.

Sliding into 2nd & 3rd Grade
Will your child be graduating either the first or the second grades in May 2016? Did they not quite meet the social and grade expectations of teachers and or peers?
Social Skills Program
Frequently, children and teens with neurological disorders have difficulty interacting with their peers. Kids will participate in fun hands-on activities with kids their age while learning social skills.
for High School
and Young Adults
While high school students and young adults with neurological disorders continue to need help with social interactions, they also need to think about daily living skills and planning for their futures.
and Transition Program
Young adults with neurological disorders have difficulty entering the world after graduation. This program helps high school students and young adults ages sixteen through twenty-five better prepare for the “real” world.
Fit to Fly
Does your child get enough exercise throughout the day? Do they avoid physical activity with every fiber of their being? We have the perfect program for you!
We are so excited, we are jumping for joy! Camp dates for 2016 are set and we couldn’t wait to share them with you. Come join us for a summer of fun!
