The Child Mind Institute Summer Program serves children ages 5-9 who need help with behavioral, learning and social issues.
Children participating in the program will benefit from a higher level of support and expertise from their counselors as they work on goals including:
- Developing and maintaining positive peer relationships
- Improving emotional awareness and regulation
- Maintaining academic progress
We want children to have fun and feel good about themselves. Children attending the Child Mind Institute Summer Program work on skills together while receiving lots of positive feedback, praise and rewards. Children can also look forward to field trips, special guest visitors and typical camp activities like group cheers, art projects, games and fun outside.
Each child will have an individualized set of goals based on his or her needs. Our 1:3 counselor to child ratio and small group sizes allow us to provide frequent feedback and real-time interventions to facilitate behavior change. Our teachers are experienced working with students who have learning and attentional issues. We will perform a learning assessment to ensure our academic work is tailored to your child’s needs. Parents receive daily feedback about their child’s progress during the program and can attend weekly parent training groups.
At the completion of the program, each family is provided with customized recommendations for learning and behavioral skills to continue working on when the program ends. We offer an additional one-day booster session on Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
Program dates: Monday, July 10-Friday, July 28, 2017
Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm with 30 minutes for lunch. Children should bring their own lunch.
Parent training groups meet on Thursdays from 9:30am to 11:00am
Where: The Windward School, East 93rd Street, New York, NY
