Summer is here which means schools are out and Project Rex Summer Hangout is starting! Hangout is a FREE open play program for our ASD youth ages 11+, and their siblings, weekly on Thursdays from 4:30-6:00pm starting on June 21st. It is hosted by MUSC at Institute of Psychiatry 5 South (MUSC IOP 5 South, 67 President Street, Charleston, SC 29425).
Hangout is a place where participants can come in and socialize, as well as play games and complete fun activities along with their peers. Ages 11+ are welcome to join us for this open-house style event. (Parents can come and socialize in the parent room next door too.) We have several members of our staff present, and no food is provided. There are no requirements to attend multiple sessions, so please come try it out!
For any questions or concerns, please email Danielle Lowe at firstname.lastname@example.org
As Project Rex Founder Dr. Gwynette wrote:
Between Group sessions, we wanted to make a time and place for children and adolescents to socialize with other kids their age.
The idea for Rex Hangouts is simple. We provide the space, along with some fun activities supervised by our staff. Parents are welcome too, and they have their very own place to gather.
We look forward to making the Rex Hangout a permanent offering for our patients and families.
