Camp Leaps and Bounds is a 4-week, intensive occupational therapy program. During the summer, many parents do not have many choices to help progress and/or maintain their child’s academic, physical and speech therapy goals they have in school. Consequently they miss out on these needed services as well as a structured program when there is no school.
Dates for 2019
July 29, 2019 to August 23, 2019
9 am – 3 pm (half day option also available)
Continuing for 2019
We are now providing full-time speech and physical therapy at our therapy center located in West Caldwell, NJ! This allows us to fully-integrate those services into our traditional Camp Leaps and Bounds model, and help maximize camp time to address as many of your child’s therapy needs. Our speech and physical therapists will also serve as additional resources for our families during their time at camp.
We will be offering the following program tiers:
- Tier 1: Occupational Therapy
- Our traditional camp experience
- Tier 2: Two services
- OT + Speech OR OT + PT
- Tier 3: All 3 therapy services
If you would not like any additional options for your child, “traditional” Camp Leaps and Bounds will remain exclusively an occupational therapy program as in previous years.
If you choose any of the above options, we will ask to obtain your child’s IEP, and/or any other documents and goals that may be helpful. We will meet with parents and collaborate to discuss progress and provide suggestions, and conclude with a recommendation/report for your child.
Academic Instruction is provided by Steps to Success Tutors, and will continue to be offered as an “add-on” to the camp experience. They use brain-based and hands-on learning strategies to help children maintain and make progress academically. Each tutor has over 5 years of experience tutoring students with autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorder and/or behavioral challenges. Academic instruction will be provided for 3 hours per week during camp.
