Starting August 15th we will be hosting the first annual LTC Olympic Games! The games will last from August 15th to August 19th. It will be a decathlon with different activities that focus on physical, occupational, and speech therapy activities. Upon completion of each activity the child will get a gold piece of paper to write their name on and add to the paper chain in the lobby. They will also be awarded a gold medal sticker on the tracking sheet next to each activity they complete. Each activity is able to be adjusted to be easier or harder to allow all age groups to participate. Below are the list of the ten different activities and a little description about each one.
