The purpose of Summer Camps at Eyas Landing is to facilitate social relationships and peer interactions with children who may need more support than their peers in understanding social nuances, engaging in and sustaining conversations, problem solving peer conflicts, and reading social cues in a group setting. Children are grouped to ensure strengths and needs are balanced in the group for each child to be able to learn from one another. For each camp, Eyas Landing’s therapists focus on a theme throughout the day as social interactions are being facilitated. The primary goal of Eyas Landing’s Summer Camps is to foster friendships while having fun!
Do you think your child could benefit from a more individualized approach? Eyas Landing can create a summer program to best meet your child’s needs.
