Guidelines for Establishing a Camp for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Many children with autism spectrum disorders are not able to thrive in a typical summer camp due to their unique sensory and behavioral needs. Yet, like all other kids, most love the camp experience. To help make this dream become a reality, the author presents step-by-step how to put on a camp that takes into consideration the special needs of children on the autism spectrum. Throughout the focus remains on the adjustments that need to be made to accommodate children on the autism spectrum during the camp experience. Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.
