ABOUT EPA'S SUMMER PROGRAM
Edelweiss Private Academy offers a summer program for children with Autism and other exceptionalities. Our staff has extensive experience working with children with various exceptionalities including, but not limited to learning disabilities, Autism, anxiety, depression and ADD/ADHD.
We strive to provide a supportive and safe environment to ensure your student will have the most enjoyable summer experience possible. With a variety of fun and exciting activities, our goal is to develop effective communication skills and peer interactions, self-help skills, and provide opportunities for new experiences.
TRANSITION PROGRAM DURING SUMMER CAMP
The purpose of the program is to support children returning to school in the fall. The goal is to make the first weeks back to school more successful. The program focuses on meeting new classmates, participating in a group, completing independent work and becoming familiar with classroom routines. Some academics will be taught as well. Please note that this program is only offered during the last two weeks of the summer camp.
These weeks are highly recommended for students registered for Edelweiss Private Academy in the fall. A clinical psychologist and senior supervision are available upon parent/guardian request, at an additional fee. This period also provides time to develop Behavioural Support Plans (if needed for the classroom in the fall).
Contact us now with any questions that you may have, or if you need assistance with completing the forms. Thank you very much for considering EPA for your student's educational advantage.
