Summer Program

About the AFT Summer Program

For parents of school-aged children on the spectrum, summer break can present a challenging time in finding functional yet

fun programs for their children. The AFT Summer Program aims to fill this need in Middle Tennessee. Combining elements of

summer-day camps and typical Extended School Year (ESY) programs, the AFT Summer Program provides an opportunity for

children with ASD to maintain their group/social skills throughout the summer, learn new skills, and have a great time all the

while. Staffed by Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), children are assigned to a functionally matched peer at a ratio of 2

children to 1 adult. A BCBA is present throughout the day to provide assistance and supervision. Social skills, activities of

daily living, academic skills, and leisure skills are incorporated into a themed schedule. Themes for this year’s program

include:

1. “Let’s Dance!” Music and Dance week

2. “We’re Going on a Space Mission”

3. “You are the Chef” (Cooking week)

4. “The Circus is in Town” (circus/carnival week)

5. “All Things Construction: From Legos to Bulldozers”

6. “Oh, the Places You Will See” (Travel week)

7. “Amazing Animals”

8. “Make-Believe: Princesses, Pirates, and More!” Dress up and play pretend week

9. “A Sensational Summer” (summer wrap-up)
