Camp in USA for Special Needs Kids
Inclusive Summer Camp 2020
Location: USA, New York State
Our Special Needs Summer Camps are held by USA Universities and are based on University campuses. Staff working with special needs kids are highly qualified University employees mostly from Education and Psychology schools. We make sure SN students are integrated into the mainstream environment with mainstream Summer Camps on the same facilities. All trips and social programs include mainstream and special needs, kids.
Inclusive Summer Camp is a 2 weeks program designed for kids with special needs age group (8-20). The main goal of the program is to integrate special needs individuals into a new welcoming environment, improve students' academic performance, eliminate attention deficit, practice sensory education, and just have fun in the USA.
Capital Speech and Language Therapy Summer Program is the perfect activity for children to experience a fun environment while enhancing communication and social skills. The summer program is designed for children with special needs, ages 8-20years old, to work on language and social skills.
During the day children participate in small speech and language groups while partaking in activities that include inside and outside play, games, art and special projects. Groups are led by a certified Speech-Language Pathologist, with assistants who are pursuing a degree in speech-language pathology or a related field, allowing all activities to focus on overall communication throughout the day!
Development goal Objectives Expected Results
Development goals The goal of the project is to foster independence in children with special needs. Through different developmental stages, progressive “windows of opportunity” emerge to foster skills that will ultimately lead to independence. Thus, the main objective of the project is to teach 10 essential LIFE SKILLS leading to achieving independence as an important part of the journey into adulthood. These tasks could include typical activities such as making the bed, performing bathroom routines, getting dressed, making meals, communicating and so many others. For most, the list is virtually endless. Our program is designed in a specific way with the right preparation and patience, children can develop the essential skills required to foster independent living. And beyond just telling students how to practice these essential life skills, students must be guided in a practical way so that they not only learn about what is being taught but learn how to apply it in the real world.
Create and rehearse daily routines such as personal daily hygiene, proper nutrition, exercise, getting dressed, table manners, dealing with common illnesses such as a cold, managing stress, etc.Enter your text here...
