Autism Summer Camp in Miami, FL
The Carrie Brazer Center offers a unique camp program for children with autism and other developmental delays. Our specialized curriculum incorporates literacy skills, music and art therapy, physical fitness and an appreciation and understanding of Florida’s natural environment. The Carrie Brazer Center specializes in teaching children with autism in a structured and positive environment. Our highly trained and qualified staff work closely together collaborating their efforts with Registered Behavior Therapists, Speech and Occupational Therapists and Certified Teachers who work throughout the summer. We keep our teacher to student ratio small, enabling us to give each child the individual attention that he or she needs. Parents can also opt for 1:1 instruction for an additional fee. Our staff will work together to develop individual academic goals and behavioral goals and objectives for each child. Throughout the time at our Autism summer camp, your child will follow a program aimed to enrich their lives by introducing a significant reading/literacy component based on nature, with hands-on demonstrations and explorations. Another unique asset of our program is our comprehensive physical education program in which children will be engaged in organized sports and games led by an adaptive physical education teacher. We also provide daily opportunities for free play on the playground. Additionally, we participate in weekly community-based outings to various places in the local area. Children will become familiar with their own community, as well as learn to transfer social and cognitive skills taught in the classroom to the environment in which they live. Our campers practice the skills they learn in the classroom setting such as counting, using money, reading street signs, using pictures to make requests, and exhibits appropriate behavior and generalize them in the community. Children with Autism benefit from a constant routine. Our schedule is structured very carefully to meet the needs of our special children. On Mondays and Wednesdays, we go to the local beaches for water instruction and sensory fun. On Fridays, we visit our community in a variety of field trips!
