Since 2011, TGS has offered a summer camp version of its Perspectives social communication program. In addition to Perspectives, TGS also collaborates with other community-based organizations to provide summer programming for adolescent students with Asperger’s or similar learning profiles. Although specific program criteria may vary, all summer experiences hosted or otherwise provided at TGS’ facility are generally appropriate for students with ASD who meet TGS admissions criteria, whether or not they are currently enrolled at TGS. The following descriptions apply to camps offered during Summer 2017. Summer program information for 2018 will be available soon!
Summer Perspectives – A Collaboration between TGS, CU Boulder Speech, Language, Hearing Center, and KGNU
Student participants will each design one interview on a topic of their choice with a local community member, record the interview in the KGNU studios, and edit the interview using computer software with KGNU radio hosts. Supervised graduate clinicians from CU Boulder will provide social communication coaching throughout the process.
For a glimpse into Summer Perspectives, see this 2011 PERSPECTIVES article in the Boulder Daily Camera, which includes a video of students in action at local media partner KGNU.
