Adolescent Life Skills

The Adolescent Life Skills summer program is developed for children ages 7-19 with diagnosis such as brain injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, amputee, spina bifida and spinal cord injury who are preparing to enter adolescence or adulthood. Our team focuses on providing participants with opportunities to learn and develop physical, cognitive and social skills and how to adapt to situations or activities. Along with learning these skills, the participants will be provided multiple opportunities to apply them to a wide variety of activities that are important for gaining independence within their community, school, and home lives. The program utilizes a multidisciplinary approach including occupational, physical and speech therapies as well as neuropsychology services.
