What do our kids need for a summer program this year, given the extraordinary times in which we still find ourselves? There is no single answer to this question. Reviewing multiple options and selecting the option that best meets the needs of your child is what we recommend for summer planning. One option to consider is Raskob Learning Institute and Day School’s Summer Intensive Program. The Raskob Summer Intensive is designed to maximize the effectiveness of instruction by making it targeted, individualized, and daily (repeated practice), while keeping overall academic time to a limited number of hours. In this way our children have the space to more fully care for their physical, social, and mental health through a variety of nonacademic activities, while still making academic gains. Raskob Summer Intensive will offer 1 to 2 hours of individualized educational therapy daily, for two 3-week programs. Last year, survey data indicated that both parents and students were very satisfied with the experience.
The Raskob Summer Intensive Program offers one or two hours of daily individual educational therapy targeted to student’s areas of academic need. Each student will have specific academic goals in reading, writing and/or math that reflect their learning needs and desires. Instruction will be delivered by Raskob Clinic’s clinicians, who are either credentialed special education teachers or certified educational therapists. Reading and writing skills will be taught through a variety of structured literacy approaches and math will be taught using Making Math Real and other multisensory approaches. Attention to the executive function skills of time management, organization, planning, self-regulation, cognitive flexibility, and task initiation and persistence will be woven into the instructional sessions. Sessions will be designed to build students’ sense of mastery.
As noted, students can sign up for one or two hours of daily educational therapy. They will be assigned the same clinician for the entire three-week session. If they enroll in both literacy instruction and math, they may have one instructor for each subject. There will be two 3-week sessions: June 20–July 8; July 11–July 29. Families can choose either morning or afternoon for 1 or 2 hour sessions, and either one of the two 3-week programs or the full 6-week program.
Clinicians will be on the Raskob campus to deliver services to those students who wish to receive in-person instruction. Sessions will be conducted following all recommended safety protocols (1student, 1 instructor, social distancing, outdoors, if possible, ventilated spaces, masks, shields, etc) as might be required at that time. Clinicians will also be prepared to serve students virtually for those for whom that is the better alternative. Families can choose between in-person and remote sessions.
