Camp questions for families with autistic children


Here are the key issues to consider when choosing a camp for your autistic child or special needs child:

1. Teacher to child ratio assistants/volunteers, background
2. Medications who dispenses, where are they kept
3. Communication devices do they have or do you bring
4. Cost and reimbursement avenues insurance
5. Hours how many breaks, rest periods
6. Goals how are they implemented, progress reports
7. Field trips how do they get there, safety issues
8. Emergency information releasing of child
9. Therapists do they have any on staff
10. Clothing bring bathing suits and extra set of clothes
11. Toileting what specifics do they need to know
12. Eating any allergy problems
13. Sunscreen my sons shoulders were red - bring your own
14. Behavior issues - how handled/charts/rewards/timeouts
15. Toys/books can you bring them from home


Hopefully these ideas and tips I have incorporated from choosing a camp suitable for my autistic children will come in handy and benefit those who seek a camp for their special child as well.

It is imperative that you start the process searching for a camp before spring break. You might be placed on a waiting list at first due to the high demand of camps for children on the autism spectrum and with developmental disabilities.
