1. What Is the Purpose of the Summer Program?
The summer program at RISE gives children a chance to build on the skills they’ve learned throughout the school year. This approach also reinforces and supports positive behaviors. Using fun and recreational group activities, the children are able to play in a safe and supportive educational environment.
2. How Does It Work?
Any youth under the age of 22 can register for this 6-hour daily program. Each group is created according to the children’s age and ability. This encourages positive social interaction among the kids and also allows them to play with other children who have similar skills and capabilities. If they need transportation to and from the program, it can be provided.
3. Who Runs the Program?
We have a Summer Program Coordinator and Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who work with students in our summer program. The Summer Program Coordinator oversees the program and supervises the DSPs. This individual is also responsible for working with the DSPs to implement plans that will address the unique needs of each youth in attendance. Our DSPs work directly with the children who are in our summer program. Their goal is to develop healthy relationships with them, engage them in group activities, foster their independence, and ensure their physical and emotional safety.
