We love summertime at ICT because we get to welcome our little friends to our Engines at Play summer camp! Our Summer Program is a weekday camp aimed at supporting communication, social and sensory development. We welcome kids ages 2-8 who need support with language and social interaction. All activities are play and group-based, and are designed to motivate and engage our campers.

Some of our Summer Program goals are to nurture development in the following areas:

Understanding nuances of language:

  • Greeting others and making eye contact
  • Listening to others
  • Respecting personal space
  • Reading, understanding, and using body language

Understanding and communicating concepts:

  • Following directions or sequencing steps to a task
  • Creating stories or retelling events
  • Negotiating or defending ideas, and accepting other’s ideas
  • Expressing thoughts, ideas or feelings, and persisting when not heard or understood

Building friendships and relating to peers:

  • Initiating play
  • Being flexible
  • Taking turns
  • Seeing something from another’s perspective
