The College Internship Program (CIP) is launching a new virtual summer program entitled Summer Sessions @CIP for teens and young adults with autism, ADHD, and other learning differences. Due to the current environment surrounding  COVID-19, CIP has elected to offer this two-week alternative to their traditional summer programs. 

The virtual program will be offered Monday-Friday July 20th-31st. Students are expected to enroll from around the country and across the globe, with options for different time zones. The program will cater to the unique needs and interests of students who learn differently 

CIP has specialized in the educational needs of teens and young adults with autism and learning differences for over 35 years, offering year-round and summer transition programs with unparalleled supports since 1984. CIP has offered its highly regarded summer programs for teens and young adults for over 10 years. 

 “As we navigate through this unprecedented time, CIP is staying highly relevant by reinforcing the key skills our students need as we adapt to the new normal’ in a very personalized way,” commented CIP President Dan McManmon. “We have been a trusted leader in the field with our cutting-edge program offerings,” he continued. “Our new virtual summer program will be done in typical CIP fashion; crafted to the unique interests of our amazing students with a heavy emphasis on fun, learning, and making social connections.”

Students enrolling in the new virtual program will receive a high-quality online experience, by taking the best of what CIP’s expert staff provides, transferring the experience to a remote platform with a mix of individual small and large group gatherings. Students will learn key transition strategies including independent living skills, healthy habits, and college readiness, in a safe, structured environment. 

The tight-knit group of selected students will have opportunities to make friends and social connections while taking part in Netflix parties, virtual escape rooms, and scavenger hunts among other fun activities. Parent workshops will also be offered.
