How To Find A Summer Autism Program

How to find a summer autism program

Lisa Jo Rudy

You finally made it through the school year. Despite all the obstacles, your child did pretty well. You even saw him meet some of his IEP goals. But now summer is looming, and you have no clue what to do with him. Ordinary summer camp looks pretty unlikely - after all, how many camp programs offer “social skills” along with “horseback riding?” Here’s how to get the process underway.

Here's How:

1) Start early. These days, even parents of typical kids start early in their quest for the perfect summer camp at the perfect price. For parents of autistic kids, the start should begin even earlier - sometime around September first!

6) Check newspapers. Special “parenting” magazines in many metropolitan areas create camp directories. These are usually published in early winter. Many include listings for camps that cater to kids with special needs.

Tips:

1) All YMCA's offer financial aid to families in need. Be sure to ask about financial aid if you need it.

2) Summer is an...
