SUMMER/WINTER Intensive Program

Summer/Winter Intensive Program

The Summer/Winter Intensive Program is a full-day program that takes place during summer and winter breaks. For primary school students, it runs from 10AM to 3 or 4PM and for secondary school students, from 10AM to 5PM.

 

It is comprised of at least 1 hour of clinical session per week along with 12 to 15 hours of psycho-educational sessions and 10 to 12 hours of ABCMM as well as group sessions centered around a specific treatment goal.

Students in the Bridge and Stream Programs also participate in the Intensive Program where a variety of small group sessions are held aside from the regular psycho-educational sessions which they have been taking during spring and fall terms.

 

For a child to join this program, clinicians must have the results and data from his Comprehensive Psychological Evaluation on which his IPEP (Individualized Psycho-Educational Plan) is established. To achieve the expected therapeutic goals, at least 3 weeks of participation in the Winter Intensive Program and 6 weeks in the Summer Program is required.

 

Over the past 20 years of providing clinical services, we have observed that children experienced a dramatic improvement in language development and reduction in academic and emotional problematic behaviors followed by an increase in adaptability to school life.

 

Most students switch to the Stream Program upon completing the Intensive Program to continue with the success in clinical and psycho-educational treatment, and if this combination of the Stream and Intensive Programs for at least 2 years, students can expect to achieve as many and higher treatment goals as they would if they were in the Bridge Program.
