At A.L.P.S. summer camp, we don’t just focus on a fun fulfilled three weeks in summer. Our aim is to have the most benefit for the children and the families. As for all chronic conditions, a continuous caretaking of the children and education also of the families, as well as the possibility to have some steady and reliable partners, is essential for a positive dynamic. Our kids and their parents should never have the feeling of being alone or “abandoned” with their questions and worries, neither during the camp nor before/ after the camp, either.
Therefore, we offer various additional and supportive programs for our children and their parents, as well as those who are involved in the daily care of the children. These particular programs have in common that they are all provided and designed individually, tailored to the specific needs of the kids, the parents and the individual circumstances.
The programs are offered in preparation for/ after the camp (e.g. medical or neuropsychological assessment), during the time of the camp (e.g., Caregiver/ Nanny program), and also after the camp (Aftercare program). Individual pricing applies.
- Medical assessment with Swiss Professor/ Doctor/ Educational Specialist. Your child can be evaluated and reassessed, as necessary, for the proper diagnosis by various specialists that will be carefully selected, according to your childs needs and previous assessments/ reports
- Caregiver program. For parents, but also for other persons involved in the education of the child and in its daily life activities it is important to have a thorough understanding of the particularities of the child to understand how to support the child the best. The basic understanding of a beneficial environment and of how to promote the childs health is key to success. Further, in particular nannies, should be trained how to overcome delicate situations. Educational talks, Q/A sessions and role plays are the main methods used.
- Aftercare program: This program provides close follow-up with Skype sessions with the parents, but also with the kids, by mail and other means. It helps the family to apply the follow-up visits if needed, remote assessment/ support with mail, etc. or parents, but also for other persons involved in the education of
