YMCA offers social and motor skills class.

The Milton Disability Awareness Committee would like to alert the community the Ed Isakson Alpharetta Family YMCA is offering a new wellness class for children with special needs.

Taught by special education teacher Monique Toole, the class focuses on social skills and character development, sensory integration and fine and gross motor skills.

Toole is employed by Forsyth County Schools with experience in creating programs for children with autism.

Gross motor skills will be presented in an obstacle course format and fine motor skills in craft-type activities for hand/finger coordination. Social skills and character traits (caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, taking turns, expressing one's feelings and empathy) will be presented in kid-friendly lessons and games to enhance their sense of belonging.

For more information, contact the YMCA at 770-664-1220 or .
