Fulton County - Learning on the Log
At Learning on the Log, we specialize in sensory-based recreational programs for children with Autism and other developmental/social/behavioral needs.  We offer after school programs, summer camps, and birthday parties.Each child participates in a variety of active programs, such as hiking, swimming, rock climbing and sports, as we focus on developing deeper relationships and enhancing social skills.  As a result, the confidence and self-worth of each child soars.
 
We are excited to announce the expansion of our programming to include an Enrichment Pre-School.  It is a yearlong, intensive program emphasizing social skills and aimed at helping children build the tools necessary to attend a larger classroom setting in the future with communication, relational and leadership skills, as well as self-confidence.
