CAMP INFORMATION

We utilize proactive, evidence-based practices such as principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, TEACCH, and data collection. Children are provided with an individualized daily classroom routine along with off-site outings to encourage independence and functional skills. Visual schedules, social stories, sensory activities, reinforcement-based interventions, and positive behavior supports are utilized daily.
