What’s the best way to learn? By having fun!

Your child will have so much fun at the Rocky Bay Social Skills Fun Day they won’t notice how much they’re learning.

The fun day offers a small group the chance to practice learned skills with peers, develop new skills under the guidance of therapists as well as experience a taste of the various Rocky Bay groups.
