After I saw this offer by Studio Movie Grill to see first run movies in a family atmosphere (read=noisy) where kids with special needs and their siblings were welcome, I knew I had to share the link. The kids are all free and the adults are $6. This company is nationwide so take a look to see if there is one in your area.
Then I thought I should share other summer resources and if I had about a million years, I could put them all here, but luckily another organization did the work for me:
Federation for Children with Special Needs - This is Federation's 2013 Summer Fun Camp Directory. You will find links to over 200 camp Web sites serving children with disabilities, as well as useful information and resources to help create a rewarding summer camp experience for you and your child.
Here are a few others I found:
Top Ten Activities - AbilityPath.org created a list of ten summer activities to do with your child that don’t require weeks of planning, a small loan or traveling further than your backyard.
NICHCY - They serve the nation as a central source of information on disabilities in infants, toddlers, children, and youth.
Washington State Resources - The Center compiles a searchable list of summer camps for children with special needs in Washington State.
It may be too late for some camps this year, but it can help you plan for next year by taking a look at the offerings. February is typically the time to get your camp on.
Please share any others you may know about from your area.
