It is well established that medication is an important aspect of ADHD treatment. Our staff work with parents and thier medical providers to observe and report on behaviors, and behavior changes, that may be affected by medications the camper is taking.
Parents (or caregivers) receive a detailed report at the end of each day and have an opportunity to speak with their child's primary counselor.
Our campers spend an hour each day on classroom work to practice and reinforce appropriate classroom skills.
