CIP Announces Summer 2022 Program Dates For Teens With Learning Differences
The College Internship Program (CIP) has announced dates and locations for their 2022 summer programs for teens and young adults with autism, ADHD, and other learning differences.
As COVID restrictions ease, CIP plans to offer in-person programming at five highly-rated college locations across the US. New dates and locations can be found on CIP’s website. All programs will be offered between July 10 and August 5th, 2022, including a virtual opportunity for participants to engage online.
Summer@CIP is designed for students entering their sophomore year of high school to students who have graduated from high school in the past year. CIP is one of the world’s most comprehensive transition programs for teens and young adults with autism and other learning differences, offering support with college, independent living, and employment.
“We are excited to return to college campuses and proud to share that nine out of ten of our families would refer others to our programs,” commented Alicia Bourdon, Summer Admissions Coordinator.
Students will live primarily in college dorms and experience a taste of college life. They will learn new skills that are embedded in CIP’s cutting-edge programming that has been crafted to meet the unique needs and interests of students who learn differently. Participants will also spend time with peers exploring activities in the surrounding community with an emphasis on making new friends and having fun. Favorite activities include bowling, boating, murder mysteries, theme parks, and wacky talent shows.
"The transition from adolescence to young adulthood for people with learning differences is a critical time in one's life," commented CIP President Dan McManmon. ”Our tight-knit groups of participants will learn strategies for making their transition to life after high school including independent living skills, practice socialization, and college readiness, in a safe environment.”
CIP has specialized in the educational needs of teens and young adults with autism and learning differences for over 35 years, offering year-round residential and summer transition program options with unparalleled support. Their virtual and in-person summer programs are designed to offer a pathway for families to help them determine the best next steps for their young adults with learning differences.
