The Summer Program is an extension of the Day Treatment and Training Program for children and adolescents. The Summer Program is a unique opportunity for children and young adults with disabilities who do not typically attend program throughout the school year. The program is offered to children and adolescents between the ages of three and twenty-one years of age. Typically, the program maintains a ratio of one staff member for every three consumers. However, in special situations a one on one ratio can be provided. The program is focused on developing social, cognitive, and independent living skills, reinforcement of communication, socialization, fine and gross motor skills, and activities of daily living. The program assists consumers in participating actively in their homes and community.
Training includes personal hygiene, decision making, socialization, meal planning and cooking, money management, and computer skills. Children and young adults with disabilities are exposed to many real life situations through field trips to movies, malls, museums, libraries, community recreation areas, an adaptive swimming pool, and special community events. Our service providers also work with individuals to help them build self-esteem and confidence.
Needs are assessed individually and training is conducted on-site and through community-based activities. Every activity is designed to develop new skills or assist in retention of learned skills. Services are delivered on the basis of a needs assessment. An individual service plan is developed by a team including the individual, parent, Support Coordinator, and UCP program staff. To help families with their busy schedules, we also provide transportation between the program and their schools or homes.
The Summer Program runs from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm Monday thru Friday during the summer months.
