2016 summer camps available at FIU

Center for Children and Families @ MMC

Beginning June 20, the Center for Children and Families will host its nationally acclaimed Summer Treatment Program (STP), open to children ages 4-12 who have been diagnosed with ADHD or who have emotional, behavioral or learning challenges.

The program has helped more than 2,500 children and families and is composed of evidence-based intensive treatments incorporated into an eight-week therapeutic, summer-camp setting. Group and tailored individual treatment plans are focused on improving problem-solving, academic functioning and social skills while also incorporating recreational, age-appropriate games and group activities.

Parents take an active role in their children’s treatment by participating in weekly parent-training sessions, where they develop the skills needed to change their child’s behavior at home and assist in their progress.

Additional programs within the STP are also available for children with ADHD interested in or currently taking medication, children entering kindergarten with Autism Spectrum Disorder and for families seeking to promote physical health and school readiness.

Fees are determined based on family income using a sliding scale. For more information, click here or call (305) 348-0477.
