For our peer-based programming, the daily rhythm includes structured activities based around each session’s theme such as cooperative games that teach social concepts, crafts, scavenger hunts, songs, stories, and science investigations.

In addition to the structured activities of the day, time for natural social interactions, such as stopping to play games, is integrated into the schedule. We believe wholeheartedly that both structured activities and unstructured play are needed to help children learn the therapeutic skills they need and then generalize those skills to an unstructured setting. Our therapeutic summer program will be facilitated by occupational therapists and speech language clinicians to provide comprehensive intervention throughout group activities

This year, our summer program will be divided into four, 2-week sessions in addition to summer kickoff week.

For our younger clients, sessions 2 & 3 will offer a half-day morning option. This will allow them to experience the fun of community and social play-based learning through an immersive summer program experience.
