Kids for Camp Summer Learning Lab
Autism Society of the Panhandle
The aim of this proposal is to provide ongoing and supervised teacher training during summer camp. This is the expansion of a successful program that provides a day camp environment for students with ASD where they can work on social and academic skills. Many of the coaches and teachers for the camp are employed as classroom teachers during the school year. the camp offers behavioral based training under the supervision of a BCBA to teachers before camp starts. Once camp is in session the teachers work with the children under the supervision of the behavioral consultant. the result is two fold, the students with ASD can continue to develop skills and avoid substantial regression over the summer months, and the classroom teachers have been provided with six weeks of hands on training to more effectively educate students with ASD during the school year.
