Kids benefit from prolonged clinical interventions through which they learn and practice social, cognitive and function-based skills. Parents and sibs enjoy their own special activities and respite during the program day. Other program highlights include a full�day program with six hours of small group therapy, recreation based integrated therapy, some combination of OT, PT, speech, behavior therapy and music or art therapy based on group goals. Transdisciplinary team has 3 pediatric therapists and 2 volunteers who work exclusively with 5 kids throughout the week. Networking/education for parents and special activities for siblings. Lots of individual respite and family recreation. Families stay together at night in their own cabins. Parents have private conference and receive written and picture progress reports and recommendations at end of week.
