Building Blocks Summer Camp
Enrollment for Summer 2018 will open on April 2, 2018.
Please check back soon for more info!
Building Blocks Summer Camps are designed for 2- to 6-year old children with difficulties in language, sensory/emotional regulation, and/or social communication development. Our daily schedule includes typical preschool activities such as circle time, center time, snack, art/sensory play, table time (structured activities), and outdoor play on the playground.
Skills developed during activities include developmentally appropriate speech and language targets, participation in group activities, and the building blocks to emerging social conversation. Intervention techniques utilized are consistent with naturalistic behavioral theory, developmental theory, the SCERTS model (Prizant, Wetherby, Rubin, & Laurent), the Early CLASS (Facilitating Early Social Communication; Rollins) developmental theory and techniques, and elements of Social Thinking (Michelle Garcia Winner) as appropriate to the individual children in the group.
Children will be grouped by age and developmental level into classrooms led by specialists in the population. Classes will be taught by a speech language pathologist, behavioral specialist, or play therapist, with additional staffing provided by college and graduate students with a special interest in early childhood developmental difficulties.
“Right fit” children for this group may have one or more of the following characteristics:
- Challenges in social communication skills, including conversation
- Challenges in play skills
- Challenges in classroom skills
- Delayed speech/language development
- Sensory processing difficulties
Highly verbal 4- to 6-year old children who are looking to gain the necessary social skills to be successful in kindergarten will be placed in our Bridge Builders classroom nestled under the larger “Building Blocks Camp” umbrella.
