Apex Summer Camp
We are very pleased to announce the opening of registration for Apex Summer Camp 2014. Dates for our expanded 5-week day camp program are July 7th through August 8th. The program runs Monday through Friday 9am – 3pm, and focuses on building social and behavioral skills through group recreational activities. Campers ages 6-12 with an autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, as well as peers and siblings, are welcome to apply. More information is available at www.apexsummercamp.org or contact us at email@example.com or (206) 221-CAMP (2267).
Social Skills Groups
The UW Autism Center is excited to offer social skills groups for preschool children ages 3-5. Groups provide an individualized, supportive environment where students learn to connect with their peers and practice skills such as social initiation, interactive play, and turn-taking. Students meet once weekly for 10 weeks at the UW Autism Center. To maximize student outcomes, group size is limited. Call 1-877-408-UWAC for information and availability!
