This option begins one hour earlier, offering kids 1:1 support to build adaptive skills. At 10:00 am these children will integrate into Elevate's Community Social Groups.
Community Skills and Social Engagement
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This is for families who would rather start the day a little later & have their kids participate only in Elevate's community social groups (with goals focusing on social skills & community integration.)
ABA Social Groups
Elevate's Summer program seeks to build social and communication skills through natural interactions, thus we work in small groups. Groups are created based on skill building and potential friendships that may blossom! Groups are led by a BCBA and 1-3 staff (depending on clients' needs and skills), and groups average 5 clients. 1 child : 1 adult ratios exist for those still learning community safety skills to help facilitate tracking with the group.
Scheduling- A Day in the Life
Seattle during the summer is like nature's amusement park. We are going to do it all this summer: swimming, sports, hiking, spray parks, social group games, bounce houses, you name it! We make our plans to have our programs in the community as much as possible, believing that the community is the most fun and natural place to practice our skills.
We all like consistency in our schedules and our children are no different. Keeping this in mind, Elevate will have 4 week schedules that will rotate 2x to let kids explore the city and return to favorite places. Additionally, we will be practicing similar skills across each location to ensure our clients have enough time to practice a game before learning something new.
Our games are modified to become accessible to our clients. Miniature disc golf courses, giant CandyLand or Memory Match, Red/Light Green light with visuals, and building your own sensory bins are all part of our experiences. Short breaks and downtime to engage in child preferred activities are built into our day every 15 minutes to make sure our clients can stretch themselves to try new things without getting overwhelmed.
Stations consist of a few game areas to rotate and try new items. Examples of stations may be making slime, playing disc golf, or playing hide and seek.
Big Group Games bring all kids together such as team building games, or kids versus adults games.
Each day of the week we head out to various parks, spray parks, and swim areas to keep the kids cooled off and having fun! Thursdays are field trip days to explore kid friendly spaces.
Elevate is offering flexible week by week scheduling to accommodate family vacations, community summer camps, family time, etc. Please communicate any anticipated vacation plans when signing up for our program. Elevate needs at least two full weeks notice if you'd like to join or cancel participation for a given week.
Elevate is streamlining the process of spending cash this summer! For each week your child attends an Elevate Summer Session, you will be charged a flat fee of $100. This money goes directly toward entry fees, transportation costs, reinforcers, purchasing snacks, and other trip specific goodies like when the ice cream truck arrives on a hot day!
I am in! Where do I sign up?
Please use below Summer Program Registration Form button to sign up. For those who sign up, a member of the Elevate team will reach out to you to confirm your spot and schedule an assessment meeting. Summer assessments will be scheduled in May and June to determine appropriate goals and skill acquisition while engaging in the community.
