The purpose of this 6 week program is to provide students with autism and other differing abilities an opportunity to interact with peers in a safe, accommodating, and flexible environment. Participants will focus on social, behavior, and communication skills. Many of our participants have varying levels of needs, and BCT makes every effort to accommodate each child’s preferences, interests, needs, and strengths.
Instructors will be responsible for creating lesson plans, preparing materials, and leading rehearsals that focus on the target goals for each student. Instructors should arrive in a timely manner and be able to assist individual students when they are not leading. There will be two mandatory training sessions for all Instructors and Volunteers, date and times TBA in addition to the Parent Meeting on Monday, June 1st.
