Take2 in Puerto Rico!
Last winter Lynn Cannon and Monica Adler Werner traveled to Puerto Rico to share Take2's mission, trainings and curriculum with the folks at the Ponce Center for Autism (CEPA) and the Consejo Estatal sobre Deficiencias del Desarrollo of Puerto Rico. After much hard work, the dedicated team of clinical staff, special education teachers, and doctoral-level clinical psychology students translated Take2 Camp into Spanish and launched the first ever, "Campamento AMIGOS"!
Campamento Amigos severd 13 children with high Functioning ASDs, ADHD and other developmental disabilities during the summer of 2012. Administration, staff and campers reported that it was a total success!
"We had a lot of fun throughout the daily activities and field trips to parks and museums while we worked on building new executive and social skills required for friendship. Satisfaction rates for both campers and their families were outstanding, this is the reason why we are planning to repeat Take2 next year with even more children."
Director, Rafael E. Oliveras-Rentas.
Social Learning Groups
Take2 is also proud to announce that, in collaboration with Ivymount School Outreach in Rockville, MD, we will be launching Unstuck and On Target© social skills groups.
The Unstuck and On Target!© Social Intervention Program helps children ages 7—11 with social learning disabilities understand the complexities of social interactions and friendships. This 20-week inter- vention program, based on the nationally-distinguished, research-based curriculum of the same name, is per- fect for highly verbal and intelligent children who struggle to understand:
- How to Be a Friend
- Emotional Self-Identification
- Verbal and Non-verbal Social Cues
- How to be a Successful Member of a Group
- How to be flexible
- & How to set and follow through with goals
The Unstuck and On Target!© groups combines weekly therapeutic student groups with bimonthly parent instructional groups to create a wrap-around intervention program that educates and supports the entire family.
DATES: SATURDAY, JANUARY 5TH - SATURDAY, MAY 25TH, 2013
REGISTRATION CLOSES: DEC. 14TH
